WYOMISSING, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 3, 2009--
PremoMet alloy is a patent pending, ultra-high strength, high toughness, quenched and tempered alloy steel. Thanks to its advanced strength and fracture toughness properties, it may enable designers to lighten the weight of parts for high-load applications by as much as 25%. The weight reduction estimates are based on the attainable ultimate tensile strength of 2,040 MPa (296 ksi) combined with the fracture toughness which is much higher than the lower-strength alternatives. Refer to the table for technical comparisons with several alloy steels currently in use.
Lighter-weight components could result in a reduction of stress on other parts, meaning lower energy consumption throughout a product’s lifecycle.
PremoMet alloy is available exclusively from Carpenter in bar, hollow bar, wire, strip, plate and billet forms and can be plated.
|Ultimate tensile Strength (MPa)||900 - 1160||1380||1200 - 1850||2040|
|Yield strength (MPa)||700 - 800||1275||1000 - 1550||1680|
|Fatigue strength (MPa)||450-600||800-900||550 - 875||1000|
|Elongation at break (%)||14||3||10||12|
|Reduction of area (%)||53||30||40||46|
