AMS 5864 is a specification for PH 13-8 Mo calling for Steel, Corrosion-Resistant, Plate, 13Cr – 8.0Ni – 2.2Mo – 1.1Al, Vacuum Induction Plus Consumable Electrode Melted, Solution Heat Treated, Precipitation Hardenable
PH 13-8 Mo per AMS 5864 is a martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel that has excellent strength, high hardness, superior toughness, and good corrosion resistance. Good transverse toughness properties are achieved by tight chemical composition control, low carbon content, and vacuum melting. The alloy is produced by vacuum induction melting (VIM) followed by electro-slag remelting (ESR).
APPLICATIONS OF AMS 5864
13-8 per AMS 5864 Stainless Steel is used in Aerospace components, landing gear, nuclear reactor components, petrochemical industry, injection molding equipment etc.
