Steel, Corrosion Resistant, Bars, Wire, Forgings, Rings, and Extrusions 15Cr - 4.5Ni - 0.30Cb (Nb) - 3.5Cu, Consumable Remelted, Solution Heat Treated, Precipitation Hardenable
This specification covers a corrosion-resistant steel in the form of bars, wire, forgings, flash welded rings, extrusions, and stock for forging, flash welded rings, or extruding. These products have been used typically for parts requiring corrosion resistance and high strength up to 600 °F (316 °C) with good ductility and strength in the transverse direction in large section sizes, but usage is not limited to such applications. Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP1110 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
AMS5659P results from a limited scope ballot to revise Heat Treatment (3.4), Classification of Tests (4.2) and Reports (4.4).
