Technical data

P900, P900N, P900N Mo and P2000 are pressure-nitrided austenic steels. The distinctive qualities include high corrosion resistance in combination with very good mechanical properties. 

Pressure-nitrided steels with outstanding properties:
  • high corrosion resistance
  • excellent mechanical properties, i.e. high strength (yield strength from 500 MPa / tensile strength from 900 MPa) whilst maintaining toughness (fracture toughness >40% depending on degree of deformation)
  • highest cold strength potential
  • biocompatible (depending on quality)
  • Hot-stamped semi-finished products and also cold-stamped semi-finished products
  • forged
  • cold drawn
  • peeled
  • machined
  • open die forged
Type Hot-processed product
