Carpenter CTS-204P (Micro Melt 20-4) alloy is a highly wear- and corrosion-resistant, air-hardening martensitic cold-work stainless die steel produced using Carpenter’s Micro-Melt powder metallurgy process. The excellent wear resistance of the alloy is provided by a significant volume fraction of hard vanadium-rich carbides, while the outstanding corrosion resistance of the alloy is obtained as a result of the chromium-rich matrix. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity. It also includes information on corrosion and wear resistance as well as forming, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: SS-1051. Producer or source: Carpenter Specialty Alloys.
