Chrome Core® 13-FM

Chrome Core® 13-FM is in family of controlled chemistry, ferritic 13% chromium alloy which are candidates for use in magnetic components where corrosion resistance superior to pure iron, low carbon steel, and silicon-iron alloys is desired without the substantial decrease in saturation induction associated with 18% Cr ferritic stainless steels. Applications could include electromechanical devices requiring some degree of corrosion resistance. Each chrome level is available in both a standard and a free-machining grade.
