Corrosion-Resistant Alloy For Magnetic Components

Carpenter Technology offers a controlled-chemistry, free-machining, ferritic 13-percent chromium alloy designed for use in magnetic components. Said to offer improved corrision resistance and good magnetic properties, Chrome Core 13-XP alloy is useful for fuel-injection components and other electromechanical devices that require better corrosion resistance than pure iron, low-carbon steel and silicon-iron alloys. In addition, the company says the alloy is an alternative to 18-percent chromium ferritic stainless steels.
