Chrome Core® 13-XP

Chrome Core® 13-XP alloy is a controlled chemistry, free machining, ferritic 13% chromium alloy which is a candidate for use in magnetic components where corrosion resistance superior to pure iron, low carbon steel, and silicon-iron alloys is desired. Exhibits comparable salt spray corrosion resistance when compared to the 18% Cr ferritic stainless steels without the substantial decrease in saturation induction.
