Nitronic 50, also known as UNS S20910 or ASTM XM-19, is a Nitrogen-strengthened austenitic alloy that provides high strength as well as high corrosion resistance. Nitronic 50 has better corrosion resistance compared to 316 Stainless with twice the yield strength.
Physical properties can be enhanced by cold working only, as this alloy cannot be tempered. It should remain non-magnetic after cold working.
Applications: Nitronic 50 has an excellent combination of strength and corrosion resistance. Its uses include, Valves, valve shafts, pumps and pumping equipment, marine, off shore rigging, heat exchanger, pulp and paper, marine shafting.
