You can quickly and easily search over 3 million steel properties and stainless steel properties records by designation, countries/standards, type, standard number, chemical composition, mechanical properties, other properties or any combination of these criteria. For example, let’s look for a German stainless steel and its material properties, which needs to have Cr > 10%, Ni and V > 0.2%, tensile stress over 650 MPa, impact over 30 J, and needs to be suitable for application in high temperatures.
Click Advanced Search from the main window. Next, choose Germany/DIN in the Country/Standard list, Stainless Steel in Group of Materials list, check box Properties on High Temperatures and enter requested steel properties and alloying elements. This will search for the combined properties of this stainless steel.
The search results screen appears. Click on a steel from the list to review its properties, in this we will discuss the first position – 1.4922.
After clicking on the material, a list of subgroups appears. In Key to Metals, the term “subgroups” refers to standard specifications that define steel properties; in this case the specification DIN 17175 is selected. Note that material properties defined according to different specifications may differ significantly.
Steel properties within the KEY to METALS Database include composition, cross-reference tables, mechanical properties, physical properties, and even creep and fatigue properties. Click on the examples below to enlarge them.
