Stainless Steel Casting of Glass Spider Fittings

stainless steel casting for glass spide fittings

What are Spider Fittings? Where are They Used? Spider Fittings, or Glass Spider Fittings, are the stainless steel hardwares for mounting glass to walls, posts, fins, or other structural substrates. Typical Types of spider fittings can be divided into Fin Spiders fittings and Point fix Spider fittings. Ideal for creating an “all glass” look, Spider Fittings are designed for mounting to walls, posts, fins or other structural substrates with minimal visible connections. Holes must be drilled in the glass for assembly.…

Duplex Stainless Steel Casting

Duplex Stainless Steel Casting

What is Duplex Stainless Steel Casting? Duplex Stainless Steel Casting is the casting process using duplex stainless steel as the material. Duplex stainless steel is called “duplex” because they have a two-phase microstructure consisting of grains of ferritic and austenitic stainless steel. The picture shows the yellow austenitic phase as “islands” surrounded by the blue ferritic phase. When duplex stainless steel is melted it solidifies from the liquid phase to a completely ferritic structure. As the material cools to room temperature,…

17-4 PH Stainless Steel Casting

17-4 PH Stainless Steel Casting

17-4 PH Stainless Steel (SAE type 630 stainless steel), is the martensitic precipitation-hardened stainless steel casting grade. Typical usage of 17-4 stainless steel castings is where high strength and a modest level of corrosion resistance is required. Strength and toughness desired can be manipulated by temperate range in the heat treatment process. Best Stainless offers high quality standards including: UNS S17400, AMS 5643, ASTM A564, and ASTM A693 Grade 630. Chemical Composition 17-4 PH Stainless Steel C Si Mn P…

Stainless Steel Casting Types and Grades

stainless steel casting grades

What is Stainless Steel Casting? Stainless steel casting is the special steel casting type used primarily because of their corrosion resistance. All stainless steels casting grades contain a minimum percentage of 10.5% chromium. Chromium is always the deciding factor, although other elements, particularly nickel and molybdenum, are added to improve corrosion resistance of stainless steel casting components. The success of the material is based on the fact that it has one unique advantage. The chromium in the stainless steel has…
