Physical Properties

Extended Temperature Performance

Stainless Steels are high temperature alloys and Leviat’s complete stainless steel range has excellent mechanical performance at elevated temperature. Stainless steels do not undergo the ductile to brittle condition change of conventional carbon steel as temperature falls. Stainless steel bars are therefore suitable for use in cryogenic and high temperature applications.

Low Magnetic Permeability

Austenitic grade bars, Ancon Staibar 304/316 and Ancon Stairib 304/316, have extremely low magnetic permeability characteristics and are virtually non-magnetic. This property can be very helpful to the designer of structures housing equipment such as electric arc furnaces, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units or other sensitive electronic equipment where a neutral magnetic environment is a requirement.
