Compared with commonly used Powder Metallurgy alloys in steel applications, K490 MICROCLEAN® excels with its consistent wear resistance coupled with more than doubled toughness. In addition, the higher deformability provides increased security against unforeseeable breakages.

S690 gives confidence to predictably and reliably manufacture very high stress, high precision, complex components from this easily available segregation free 3rd generation powder metallurgy steel. A Steel with excellent uniform properties and superb stability in machining and heat treatment allowing for optimum productivity. Readily available in a wide range of diameters for close to finished part machining to save money and maximise cost effectiveness.
Ultra-high strength maraging steel which can remove traditional issues associated with heat treatment in martensitic steels. In contrast to normal heat treatable steel its outstanding tensile properties are due to precipitation of intermetallic phases from a ductile nickel matrix with almost no carbon making it a versatile material in highly stressed components.
Predictably manufacture high stress complex components from this low segregation 3rd generation powder metallurgy steel. A steel with excellent uniform properties, superb stability in machining and heat treatment allowing for optimum productivity. Readily available in a wide range of diameters for close to finished size machining.
