Forta H500 is an austenitic stainless steel in which manganese replaces some of the nickel. Its high-nitrogen content adds strength. Grades Forta H800 and H1000 can be derived from the same composition by changing the degree of work hardening. This datasheet provides information on physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming and joining. Filing Code: SS-1278. Producer or source: Outokumpu Stainless AB, Avesta Research Centre.
