Nitronic® 33 Alloy Description
Nitronic® 33 is a nitrogen-strengthened austenitic stainless steel having an annealed yield strength twice that of alloy 304. Better resistance to stress corrosion cracking than alloy 304. It retains low magnetic permeability at cryogenic temperatures even after severe cold working. Superior wear and galling resistance when compared to the standard austenitic steels.
Screens where good wear or abrasion is required
Heat exchangers where the stress corrosion cracking resistance of alloy 304 is insufficient
Electrical components where high strength and low magnetic permeability is required.

Nitronic® 33 can be cold rolled to achieve the temper properties required by specific customers and/or manufacturing requirements. Contact Ulbrich Wire for details.
Refer to NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations.
Standard Wire Finishes
Extra Clean: (XC) Extra clean is also referred to as “bright annealed” or “bright annealed and cold rolled”
Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an “Ultra bright” finish for decorative applications
Soap (round wire only): Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation. A soap finish is available in tempered products.
Plated: Many plating options are available.
Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.
Cut to lengths
Nitronic® 33 is non hardenable by heat treatment.
