AISI 253MA | 1.4835 | X9CrNiSiNCe21-11-2 | Stainless steel

Data sheet according to DIN EN 10095 for material number 1.4835

Stainless steel 1.4835 / AISI 253MA is a heat-resistant austenitic chromium-nickel steel that essentially corresponds to material 1.4828 / AISI 309. However, it differs from this material due to its higher nitrogen content and the addition of rare earths (cerium) as an alloy component. Stainless steel 1.4835 has good scaling resistance of up to approx. 1100 °C in dry air. It also has good weldability. This material is particularly suitable for applications in the high temperature range, which is why it is used, for example, in industrial furnace construction or in the construction of heat exchangers.

Weldability of stainless steel 1.4835

The material 1.4835 has good welding properties and can be used with all common welding processes such as arc welding, metal inert gas welding (MIG welding) or tungsten inert gas welding (TIG welding). Preheating and post-weld heat treatment are not normally required. You can use the CEV calculator to determine the carbon equivalent of the steel.

Heat resistance of the material

Stainless steel 1.4835 / AISI 253 MA is a steel grade designed for heat resistance, which is specially intended for high-temperature applications. Heat resistance is given up to approx. 1150 °C. The material also has good scale resistance, which is given in air up to 1100 °C, but decreases from around 900 °C.

Corrosion resistance of the material

Due to the high carbon and nitrogen content, stainless steel 1.4835 / AISI 253 MA has reduced resistance to oxidising and reduced sulphur-containing gases. Corrosion resistance in contact with water is not given.

Heat treatment and hot forming

Solution annealing (cooling with air or water): 1020-1120 °C
Hot forming (cooling by air): 1150-900 °C

Application area of stainless steel 1.4835

As a heat-resistant stainless steel, the material 1.4835 / AISI 253 MA is used in many areas where high temperatures are used. These include, for example, furnace construction, power plant construction and apparatus engineering. This chromium-nickel steel is also used in the petrochemical industry, oil plants and refineries. The material is also used in heat treatment plants, the cement industry and the metal industry. The material is also used in mechanical engineering and in the automotive industry.
