There are many applications that can benefit from grain refinement. Grain refinement is a result of specific manufacturing techniques which allow for a finer grain. In almost every case, a finer grain material will outperform a coarser grain item of the same material. The basis of finer grains being stronger is that while there are more dislocations in the material, it is more difficult to make all these dislocations line up. Finer grains also typically have less precipitates in the boundaries. Precipitates are oxides, carbon, and interstitial elements that are not in solution of the grain. Precipitates are normally not as strong as the material itself - tending to make a precipitated material more brittle.

Customer service is important. We know, we have to buy products too. We have all experienced bad customer service and we know it is to be avoided. At High Performance Alloys, the service comes before the sale, with the sale and after the sale. We are extremely proud of our customer service. Here are some of the reviews we have received from customers:

NITRONIC 60 is a natural stainless material for fastening systems. With an elevated yield strength (almost twice that of 304 and 316) in the annealed condition, it will take higher forces than popular stainless steels. This strengthening is primarily through the addition of Nitrogen to the composition. With the additions of Silicon and Manganese the material resists galling much better than these grades as well. These additions in essence help the inherent lubricity of the alloy and when coupled with the higher strength means that it will take higher stress before stretching or galling and tearing the thread.

Research and Development Facility Expanding Production
We are expanding to handle greater production requirements, because we do not want to turn away any potential clients. Although we may be busier than ever, and running extra shifts - we plan to still offer the quick lead times and short production runs that have made us one of the best kept secrets in the business. Word of mouth advertising with engineers has helped us through the years. We'd like your help in keeping the engineers informed of the possibilities we can offer.

[We had a series of articles written for High Performance Alloys (HPA)
as a reflection of the roots of the company,
and early achievements - this is one such article.]
The Very Beginning
Starting a company is difficult, but starting a company in the middle of a trying economic recession is just crazy. That bit of crazy made the small company of High Performance Alloy s a stable leader i n the industry for the past 30 years.
