Die casting is one of the most widely used casting processes but what is the difference between Gravity Die Casting and Pressure Die Casting? Both are casting processes used by NovaCast, so we are well placed to explain the differences and discuss the selection criteria. Both forms of Die Casting employ a metal mould into … Read more
STAINLESS STEEL SA-351 CF8M
Stainless Steel SA-351 CF8M is a molybdenum bearing modification of CF8 Austenitic Steel alloy and is the cast equivalent of wrought AISI 316 stainless steel. The presence of molybdenum increases the general corrosion resistance and the resistance to pitting by chlorides.
Applications include valves, flanges, fittings and other pressure-containing parts. CF8M austenitic stainless steel is a commonly used alloy for products that require excellent overall corrosion resistance. This alloy is commonly used whenever the part will not be welded or can be solution annealed after welding. CF8M may be used at temperatures up to 1500F.
