13-8 MO Stainless Steel

Type 13-8 MO (Precipitation Hardened) is a vacuum melted, martensitic stainless steel alloy with a toughness especially suited for the aerospace and nuclear energy industries. Type 13-8 MO can be heat treated and therefore makes it extremely valuable when hardness and stress corrosion in severe conditions are the main concern.
