This chapter discusses the mechanical properties of powder metal stainless steels and the extent to which they can be controlled through appropriate alloying and processing steps. It describes how process-related factors, such as porosity, interstitial content, sintering atmosphere, and heating and cooling profiles, affect strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance. It also provides an extensive amount of property data – including tensile and yield strength, elongation, hardness, and creep and stress rupture measurements as well as fatigue curves – for various grades of powder metal stainless steel.
