High nitrogen stainless steel alloys provide new opportunities. (News Briefs).
The new powder metallurgy nitrogenated stainless steel alloys are single phase (austenite) with no tendency to form the embrittling nitride and sigma phase compounds often found in high nitrogen stainless steels. The unique microstructure results in consolidated parts with superior corrosion and mechanical properties compared to commercially available wrought alloys, and reduced costs compared to other powder metallurgy nitrogenated stainless steel alloys. Three NIST scientists were awarded U.S. Patent 6,168,755 for the development.
