High-Performance Alloys

Among stainless steels and alloys, these high-performance alloys provide superior functionality. Features include high corrosion resistance, heat resistance, high strength and other special features such as not being magnetizable. These alloys are used in harsh environments under tough conditions in advanced technology fields such as desalination, atomic power, semiconductors, solar cells and fuel cells.

Ordinary austenitic steel becomes magnetized when cold worked, but austenitic steel containing manganese does not pick up a magnetic charge even with intense cold working. NAS NM15M and NAS NM17 are non-magnetic stainless steels developed by Nippon Yakin. They are used in mobile phones, metal accessories for clothes, electronic components and other parts where magnetism is not desired.

Nippon Yakin Grade UNS EN / DIN JIS Chemical Composition
NAS NM15M 17Cr-15Mn-4Ni-0.3N
NAS NM17 17Cr-17Mn-7.3Ni
