1. Very high tensile strength with comparably good ductility 2. Very high ageing effect 3. Hardenable by heat treatment from the annealed condition 4. No softening after exposure to temperatures up to 450°C (842°F) 5. Good weldability.
Sandvik Nanoflex is a precipitation hardening, austenitic stainless steel specifically designed for applications requiring high strength and good ductility. Mechanical strength can be increased substantially by heat treatment (ageing) of the final product, after first taking advantage of a soft 'as-delivered' condition, favourable for forming.
