Clean Steel Technology – a manufacturing process that delivers consistent steel through control and refinement of the melt.
Corrosion Resistance – similar to that of 316L Stainless, Mir 50 Bushing Stock is engineered for use in severe service applications. Most commercial stainless grades fight corrosion but lack strength. Alloy grades and hardenable stainless grades have strength but lack corrosion resistance. Mir 50 Bushing Stock does both.
High Strength – is a thermally hardened martensitic stainless alloy. It has similar strength levels like a 4340 Q&T alloy bar product with approx. 140KSI tensile strength. Austenitic grades, such as 304 and 316 stainless, require strain hardening or cold reduction to obtain their hardness.
Double Stress Relieved – shipped virtually free of retained stress and has “low memory” properties, this material will not exhibit the “movement” and “walking” commonly experienced when machining 304, 316, and other stainless grades.
Ease of Machining – it is not gummy, and it will hold a bright finish.
Non-Galling – Mir 50 Bushing Stock is non-galling. It is compatible with almost every other stainless grade, as well as carbon and alloy grades of steel. Maintenance people will find that hex nuts, caps, and collars come apart easily for inspection, replacement and repair.
