Has very high strength and is often used where a mechanical joint is needed. One of the easier to machine high strength alloys.
Used in products for general engineering purposes, structural applications in construction and transportation.
Properties given are typical and should only be used for comparisons of alloys.Actual values will depend on section specification.
