Greek Ascoloy UNS S41800

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.

Heat Treatment

Annealing: typical Heat to 1300f (704c) approx four hours air cool. Brinell hardness approximately 280.

Alternate 1450f (788c) for two - four hours, furnace cooled to 800f (427c) then air cool to at least 200f (93c). Re-heat 1250/1350 (677/704c) for twelve hours minimum then air cool. Brinell hardness 255

Hardening: an austenizing temperature of 1700/1800f (927/982c) is generally used followed by oil or air. Large sections should be pre-heated at 1200/1400f (649/760c) prior to hardening.

Typical Room Temperature Tensile properties

Hardened at 1550f (954c) and oil quenched, followed by tempering at indicated temperature for four hours and air cooled.
