It’s always nice to receive positive feedback from a customer, in this instance from Jeff Burge at Lakeview Machine LLC.
Lakeview Machine required XM-19 stainless steel at short notice. Our version of this alloy, Fermonic 50, which is available in both an annealed and high strength format, is a cornerstone of our stock holding. It’s high strength (double that of Alloy 304 / Alloy 316) and increased ‘Pitting Resistance Equivalent number’ (PREN) of 34 (versus only 25 for Alloy 316) makes it widely suitable for many applications – and its listing in NACE MR1075 supports oil and gas applications.
Jeff provided our Houston branch with the following: “Thanks to Cassi, and the folks at Langley Alloys, for helping us to get this material so quickly. It sure helps to have a supplier that can respond to urgent requests.”
