Vascomax 250 Plate

Vascomax 250 plate is a vacuum induction melted and vacuum arc melted, low-carbon, nickel-cobalt-molybdenum high temperature alloy.

Vascomax 250 steels sheet are supplied in the annealed condition where the microstructure consists of fine martensite. Aging to achieve final properties is a relatively low temperature procedure giving the required high strength and toughness. This low temperature treatment allows for machining close to final size since distortion is minimal. Vascomax 250 steels plate also retain their strength up to 450◦C (840◦F), can be nitride and have a corrosion resistance similar to that of standard martensitic stainless steels.

Vascomax 250 plate is the lowest strength of the maraging steels stocked by Calico . Typical usage is in jet engine shafts, missile casings, ordinance mounting blocks and tooling.
