More About Stainless Steel Casting
The base alloy elements of any nickel-base or stainless steel casting are chromium, nickel, and molybdenum (or “moly”). These three components will determine the casting’s grain structure and mechanical prosperities, and will be instrumental in the casting’s ability to combat heat and/or corrosion.
Stainless steel has a minimum chromium content of 10.5%, making it more resistant to corrosive liquid environments and to oxidation. However, this is not an absolute. Stainless steel investment castings are considered to be “corrosion-resistant” when used in liquid environments and vapors below 1200°F (650°C) and “heat-resistant” when used above this temperature.
The industry distinguishes corrosion-resistant and heat-resistance casting grades by their carbon content. A stainless steel casting must have low carbon content to perform well in corrosive environments. Thus, higher carbon content will improve the performance of heat-resistant grades in high temperatures situations and improve their strength.
There are differences between wrought and cast versions of stainless steel. This is due to their chemical composition and their micro-grain structure, which is affected by how the material is produced. These factors must be taken into consideration when choosing an alloy for your stainless steel investment castings.
