Here at Best Stainless, we provide the MP35N® alloy in round bar. MP35N® is a nickel-cobalt base alloy of the Multiphase alloy systems that has a unique combination of properties ultra high strength, toughness, ductility and outstanding corrosion resistance.

MP35N® Alloy Characteristics

MP35N® alloy is renowned for its exceptional resistance to stress corrosion cracking and crevice corrosion, qualities that make it an ideal choice for fastener material in demanding environments. This alloy excels in resisting corrosion in environments containing chlorides, various inorganic acids, and is notably resistant to sulfidation, high-temperature oxidation, and hydrogen embrittlement. Such resilience makes it exceptionally suitable for harsh operational conditions found in marine, petrochemical, and medical applications.

Typically, MP35N® is cold worked to enhance its mechanical properties, followed by age hardening to fine-tune the balance between corrosion resistance and strength to meet specific application requirements. The age-hardening temperature is critical and varies based on the extent of cold working and the desired balance between corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. Incorrect aging temperatures can adversely affect the alloy's strength.

For expert guidance on achieving the optimal combination of cold working and age hardening for your specific application, please consult with Best Stainless. Our specialized value-added services are designed to alleviate the complexity of material selection and processing for our customers, ensuring peace of mind and successful outcomes.
