Our work impacts critical industries ranging from medical and aerospace manufacturers to defense contractors and power generation applications. From our heat treatment facility in Bucks County, we provide processing for many specialized materials. Below you will find a growing glossary of some of the specialized metals, alloys, and materials we work with regularly. For more information, please contact us.
Martensitic Stainless Steels: Quenched and Tempered
410 stainless steel, 420 stainless steel, and 440A stainless steel are some of the most common types of martensitic steel. These types of stainless steel react to heat treatment much like high carbon steel alloys.
Austenitic Stainless Steels: Solution annealed
This is the most commonly used type of stainless steel making up more than half of the global stainless steel market. With its resistance to heat and corrosion, it is extensively used in a variety of industries including medical, automotive, aerospace, and industrial applications.
Precipitation Hardening Stainless Steels: Solution Annealed, Age Hardened
Precipitation hardening stainless steels are a combination of the properties of martensitic and austenitic grades. Most known for their gaining of strength through heat treatment and they also have the corrosion resistance of austenitic steels. The most well-known precipitation hardening steel is 17-4 PH.
