AMS 5629 is a precipitation-hardening stainless steel. It has good ductility and strength at elevated temperatures, making it ideal for applications requiring higher temperatures than typical austenitic alloys can handle. Additionally, AMS 5629 is known for its superior corrosion resistance, especially against stress corrosion cracking in chloride-bearing environments. This steel type is often used in aerospace, nuclear, petrochemical and medical applications due to its high temperature strength and resistance to corrosion. Its toughness also makes it suitable for use in components that require superior fatigue properties.
AMS 5629 can be machined and formed easily and welded with conventional methods. It is important to note that this steel type should be post weld heat treated in order to obtain optimum corrosion resistance. This steel has excellent machinability and can be tempered up to 1650°F (900°C). AMS 5629 is available in sheet, strip and plate forms with thickness ranging from 0.012” (0.3mm) to 0.125” (3.2mm). It can also be supplied in round, flat and hex bar forms with diameters ranging from 0.25” (6.4mm) to 6” (152mm). Depending on the application, AMS 5629 can either be in annealed or aged condition.
AMS 5629 is an excellent choice of steel for many varied applications. It has superior strength and corrosion resistance that make it suitable for a wide range of industrial and consumer products. Its high temperature strength, excellent machinability, and resistance to stress corrosion cracking make it the ideal material for components in aerospace, nuclear, petrochemical and medical industries. The availability of AMS 5629 in many different forms and sizes allows it to be used effectively in a wide range of projects.
With post weld heat treatment, this steel retains its superior properties and ensures that components remain reliable and durable for years to come. Depending on the application, AMS 5629 can either be annealed or aged depending on what is required from the component. All in all, AMS 5629 is an excellent choice for many different industrial and commercial applications.
What is the density of AMS5629?
The density of AMS 5629 is 8.13 g/cm3. This specific gravity allows it to maintain its superior properties even at high temperatures and when exposed to corrosive chemicals or atmospheres. It also makes the steel suitable for heavy-duty applications where strength, durability and corrosion resistance are necessary. With its high strength to weight ratio and good ductility, AMS 5629 is an ideal steel for components that require higher temperatures than typical austenitic alloys can handle. It is also a popular choice for aerospace, nuclear, petrochemical and medical industries due to its superior properties.
