# ASTM A182 Grade F11 Class 1 (K11597) Steel

ASTM A182 grade F11 class 1 is an alloy steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the annealed condition. Grade F11 Class 1 is the ASTM designation for this material. K11597 is the UNS number.

It has a fairly low tensile strength among wrought alloy steels in the same category. In addition, it has a moderately low thermal conductivity and a moderately high ductility.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare ASTM A182 grade F11 class 1 to: wrought alloy steels in the same category (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.

## Alloy Composition

Among alloy steels, the composition of ASTM A182 grade F11 class 1 is notable for containing a comparatively high amount of chromium (Cr). Chromium is used to improve corrosion resistance and most mechanical properties (particularly at higher temperatures).

Fe | 96 to 97.7 | |

Cr | 1.0 to 1.5 | |

Si | 0.5 to 1.0 | |

Mo | 0.44 to 0.65 | |
