The SST designers were clever enough to select not just any old stainless alloy
for the cases, but one that is magnetic.
17-4 PH is a stainless alloy
that is what is known as "precipitation hardened." (Thus the "PH" in the name.) Along with the usual non-corroding alloying metals, it has a dollop of copper in it.
The most common stainless alloy
used in rifles is 416, with a chromium content of 12 to 14 percent.
Custom 465 stainless is a premium quality, high strength, martensitic, age-hardenable stainless alloy
designed for improved notch tensile strength, fracture toughness and fabricability.
You must use particular stainless alloy
fasteners designed for stainless steel sheets, which specifically address the demanding sheet hardness and corrosion requirements of stainless in stainless applications.
Other topics include the addition of silicon and cobalt to Fe-Mn alloys, hydrogen-induces damping peak temperatures in bulk metallic glasses, ceramic polymer composites for musical instruments, and uses of high damping stainless alloy
TIP 0402-26 Guidelines for Welding and inspection of stainless alloy
This was exacerbated with the 66, since its stainless alloy
heated up more quickly than the chrome molybdenum ordnance steel of the 19, causing parts to expand and jam the gun, usually in the area of the gas ring.
The shaft is comprised of aluminum, steel, or stainless alloy
Custom 465 stainless alloy
provides high strength and fracture toughness for medical instruments, and also has been used for screwdrivers and nut drivers.
The manufacturer was initially satisfied with both the productivity and the consistency of the Project 70 stainless alloy
. However, Carpenter representative Joe Vogl suggested that Carpenter's newer Project 7000 stainless type 304L could provide better results.
