The very-thin-grain molecular structure provides a very high hardness
without detriment to processability. Its inert behaviour towards
other metals, together with its tendency to self-smoothing make
it ideal for use it is intended for. Actually, going on using it, increasing
hardening can be obtained on the surface while keeping remarkable
antifriction properties. The alloy is forgeable and susceptible to thermal

Owing the remarkable hardness and extreme brittleness it is exclusively
used for the building of stainless steel molds for deep padding; lathe
processing is possible, only, but with very cautiously.
Very similar to DURAN 514 but with even greater hardness; lower brittleness
and better processability.
