Anderson Shumaker forges greek ascology in a variety of shapes including bars, blocks, discs and rings. Often referred to as stainless steel 418 or alloy 615, Greek Ascoloy is a chromium-nickel-tunsten, hardenable martensitic alloy that is designed for service at temperatures up to 1200f (649c) in highly stressed parts. Greek Ascoloy (AMS 5616) is an extremely deep hardening grade. When general physical properties of 12 percent chromium stainless steel are used, this alloy with its superior creep strength and resistance to tempering and stress-corrosion cracking is widely preferred.
Applications: Greek Ascoloy has good resistance to oxidation and scaling at temperatures up to 1400f (760c) It has its best corrosion resistance in the hardened and tempered condition. It is resistant to atmospheric conditions, weak organic acids and oxidizing acids.
