Electralloy Becomes Sole North American Manufacturer of NITRONICÂ® Bar, Billet and Ingot
With the recent expansion of the company’s license from AK Steel to produce Nitronic® bar products, Electralloy has become North America’s exclusive licensed producer of all Nitronic bar, billet, coil rod, master alloy, pigs and ingot products as well as weld wire and weld consumables. Electralloy has been providing these licensed Nitronic products to the marketplace for over 16 years.
Electralloy is also licensed to manufacture Nitronic 32, 33, 40, 50, and 60 plate and plate products through its plate department, G.O. Carlson Plate. Nitronic 30 plate and plate products can be supplied using slabs melted by AK Steel.
“We’re proud to have been awarded the exclusive licensing for Nitronic bar” said Wayne Weaver, V.P. Sales. “We can now provide the full range of products and believe that customers will be confident knowing that if it says Nitronic it came from Electralloy.”
In North America, only Electralloy uses standard Nitronic melting and processing practices to ensure consistently superior quality in all product forms. Electralloy AOD refines, argon shrouds, and bottom pours all NITRONIC ingots for optimum quality and yield. For specific applications and sizes Electralloy will employ ESR in the remelt step.
Nitronic stainless steels are high-strength and corrosion-resistant austenitic products that provide higher-performance alternatives to many conventional 300 and 400 Series stainless steels.
Nitronic alloys are designed for a variety of applications and can provide excellent mechanical properties at both sub-zero and elevated temperatures, impact resistance at low temperatures and superb resistance to high-temperature oxidation. In addition, they retain good weldability and fabricability and remain non-magnetic even after extensive cold working.
Typical market applications for Electralloy’s Nitronic products include: petrochemical, nuclear, marine, chemical, industrial, food service, pulp, paper, textile and infrastructure components. Pumps, valves, pipe and fittings, fasteners, chains, marine hardware, boat and pump shafting, heat exchanger parts, springs, pins, bushings, bearings, and wear rings are common components produced from Nitronic products.
