15-5 PH Stainless Steel per ASNA 6116 is a precipitation hardening alloy. 15-5 PH exhibits high strength and hardness with moderate corrosion resistance (CRES).
15-5 PH Stainless Steel is used in applications that require high transverse strength and toughness such as engine parts, aircraft components, nuclear reactor components etc.
As a Tier 1 Aerospace company, Airbus holds its subcontractors to the same standards by ensuring they source material per ASNA 6116 from approved sources. This creates accountability and ensures the highest quality standards are achieved in the manufacturing process.
