Precipitation Hardened (+P930) 1.4594 Stainless Steel

EN 1.4594 +P930 steel is EN 1.4594 stainless steel in the aged (precipitation hardened) condition. It has the lowest strength and highest ductility compared to the other variants of EN 1.4594 stainless steel.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare EN 1.4594 +P930 steel to: wrought precipitation-hardening stainless steels (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.
