Product Description

BÖHLER P513 is a weldable, non-magnetic austenitic stainless steel with resistance to seawater and intergranular corrosion. Does not require post-weld heat treatment. It offers best galling resistance of all stainless steels and high pitting resistance.
The oxidation resistance of BÖHLER P513 is far superior to common Cr-Ni austenitic stainless steels (Type 304) but not quite as good as for Cr-Ni-Mo Types (316), but it offers better chloride pitting resistance, stress corrosion cracking resistance and crevice corrosion resistance than Type 316 under standard testing conditions.
BÖHLER P513 is a high Silicon, high Manganese, Nitrogen strengthened austenitic stainless alloy that was originally designed as a temperature alloy and therefore performs well at high temperature around 1800ºF. The additions of silicon and manganese assist to inhibit wear, galling and fretting even in the annealed condition. Through cold working BÖHLER P513, it is possible to attain higher strengths, however it does not enhance the anti-galling properties

It is used in the Aerospace, Food and Drug, Oil Field, Petrochemical, Surgical and Chemical Processing Industries for e.g. Valve Stems, Seats and Trim, Fastening Systems, Screening, Chain-drive Systems, Pins, Bushings and Roller Bearings, Pump Components (Wear Rings and Lobes), Food-Contact applications.
