15-5 PH Stainless Steel is a precipitation hardening alloy. 15-5 PH exhibits high strength and hardness with moderate corrosion resistance (CRES).
15-5 is a variant of the older 17-4 and 15-5 was designed to have greater toughness than S17400, especially in the through-thickness (short transverse) direction.
15-5 is used in applications that require high transverse strength and toughness such as engine parts, aircraft components, nuclear reactor components etc.
Fighter Jet Metals is one of the leading providers of 15-5 and has substantial experience in market pricing of this material for Round Bar, Rect. Bar, Plate, Sheet, Billet, and Strip.
