Austentic Steel Valve
Austenitic valve steels are precipitation hardenable. This feature provides good resistance to corrosive attacks, even at high temperatures, such as within engine exhaust gases. They have also proved outstanding resistance to wear and to thermal and mechanical shocks. As a result, they are used in the manufacture of internal combustion engine valves.
