Austenitic (Non-Magnetic) Structural Steel

Case ID:

Wayne State University research has yielded both a novel composition and a lower cost processing technique for the creation of austenitic non-magnetic structural steel. This steel has advantages that include a high work hardening rate, good corrosion resistance, combination of strength and ductility and good creep resistance. Use of this steel in energy generation devices will reduce magnetic permeability and thus reduce power loss.

Commercial Applications

• Naval structures and ship construction
• Petrochemical and food processing industries
• Energy generation devices

Competitive Advantages

• Lower cost processing technique
• High work hardening rate
• Good corrosion resistance
• Combination of strength and ductility
• Good creep resistance
