1.4961- X8CrNiNb16-13

The material 1.4961 is a stainless austenitic steel that is additionally alloyed with niobium. Niobium is used for stabilization, giving the material very good resistance to inter-crystalline corrosion. Furthermore, the material is heat resistant and thus frequently used in heat exchangers and turbine construction.

Some options for processing:

  • Turning
  • 5-axis milling
  • Eroding
  • Marking
  • etc.

This material is sold under the following brand name:

  • AISI 347H
