Alloy 422 Stainless Steel Bar - AMS 5655

Alloy 422 stainless bar is a hardenable, martensitic stainless steel designed for service temperatures as high as 1200 F. This grade develops high mechanical properties via heat treatment and offers good scaling and oxidation resistance.  Typical applications have included buckets and blades in steam turbines, high temperature bolting and valve and valve trim.

Physical Properties of 422 Stainless Steel

Density

Heat Treatment

Hardening

0.280 lb/cubic inch

Heat treatment is sensitive as the alloy is very susceptible to cracking

In the annealed condition, typical hardness is Rc 21/25.

In the quenched and tempered condition, hardness is typically Rc 45/50.

Mechanical Properties of 422 stainless steel

422 bar is readily machinable in the annealed condition with machining characteristics similar to those of alloy 420 stainless steel.
