New Grade: XM-28
XM-28 is a high manganese low nickel austenitic stainless steel, strengthened by extra nitrogen present in solid solution. Due to lower nickel compared to 304 and 316 type stainless steel, XM-28 provides a major cost advantage without adversely affecting corrosion resistance for many applications. High nitrogen provides significantly higher tensile strength and yield strength without adversely affecting elongation and reduction in area (ductility) or non magnetic properties.
This grade is an excellent choice for rebar used in bridge construction and in marine environment.
Rebar is provided in as rolled (un-annealed) and pickled condition.
