Cast Alumina Forming Austenitic Stainless Steels
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee, United States
ORNL has patented new alumina forming austenetic stainless steel alloy compositions for use in castings at temperatures up to 900-950ºC, and work is underway to modify the compositions of these cast alloys to increase their upper operating temperatures to 1100ºC.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Alumina-forming austenitic stainless steels are a novel class of high performance steel alloys. Of particular significance is the energy production market where the shapes of the components are amenable to a centrifugal casting process.
