Latest company news about FV520B 1.4594 S45000 Stainless Steel Round Bars

FV520B is a martensitic precipitation hardening stainless steel.

It is similar to the more common PH grade 17-4PH. It combines moderate corrosion resistance

with high strength and moderate toughness.


EN DIN Brand
1.4594 X5CrNiMoCuNb14-5 FV 520B


Approximate Composition – 14% Cr, 5%Ni, 1.5% Mo, 1.5% Cu, 0.05% C plus Nb

(Exact composition ranges vary between EN and ASTM standards. UNS S45000 is a near equivalent).


This grade combines the following characteristics:

Moderate corrosion resistance, better than standard martensitic grades. Can be better than 17-4 PH depending on environment
Controlled balance of mechanical properties by ageing (precipitation hardening)
High 0.2% proof strength from 720 MPa minimum to 1030 MPa minimum dependent on heat treatment condition
Moderate toughness – 40 Joules minimum in lowest heat treatment condition even at moderately low sub-zero temperatures –70°C
Weldable with matching consumables
Difficult to machine


FV 520B, like 17-4 PH, develops its high strength from the precipitation of copper particles in its martensitic matrix.

The supply of this grade is complicated by the mismatch between the “traditional” heat treatment conditions

and those laid down in the EN standard. For example, age hardening at 450°C has long been considered to give the

maximum strength in this grade. Yet, no such heat treatment is recognised in EN 10088-3.

The aerospace standards S143/144/145 are closer to established heat treatments.

The combination of high strength and good corrosion resistance finds uses in:


Pump shafts, impellers, fasteners, fans, valves, hydraulic equipment, turbine blades, aerospace,

nuclear transport flask, medical devices.
