Nitronic 50 is best known for it is combined abilities of corrosion resistance and strength. With corrosion resistance even stronger than 316, it is a common choice among marine based vessels. While it boasts many impressive properties, there are few properties more impressive than the fact that when it is cooled to sub-zero temperatures, it does not become magnetic like other similar metals.
Nitronic 50 is best known for its usage in petrochemical, petroleum, food processing, and marine industries. It is best used with the combination of corrosion resistance and high strength values, especially for valves, fittings, fasteners, cables and chains. It is most important factors are heat exchange and corrosion resistance.
Nitronic 50 Features
Heat Exchange – Nitronic 50 has many of the same heat changing attributes as other stainless steel grades available. The main strength over other types, mainly 316, is its ability to remain neutral in sub-zero temperatures. This makes it incredibly helpful and useful to industries that find themselves in freezing or deep cool climates. It also helps that even in these conditions, Nitronic 50 remains stronger than 316 marginally.
Corrosion Resistance – Another aspect that 50 can boast over 316 is its ability to withstand more corrosion. This corrosion resistance makes it completely ideal for marine environments. Their ability to withstand high variance of temperatures while being able to deter the natural corrosion of freshwater and saltwater environments makes it one of the superior stainless types.
