High-Strength, Castable & Forgeable Ferrium® PH48S™ Stainless Steel

Ferrium PH48S steel is a castable and forgeable corrosion-resistant high-strength steel designed to offer increased toughness and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistance as compared to commercially available stainless steel alloys, with one project goal being to replace cast titanium components with cast stainless steel components for section thicknesses up to 3” and reduce dissimilar metal connections. We completed a U.S. Marines Corp.-funded SBIR Phase II project to computationally design this alloy using our Materials by Design methodology.

Material and Licensing Availability

We’re specifically interested in speaking with major end-users/OEMs about their needs for castable, high-strength steels. We’re always interested in speaking with potential licensees and with major end-users/OEMs about material needs and industry developments. Please contact us if you would like to talk about your application.
