PH13-8Mo Aerospace Fasteners: High Strength Meets Versatility

Ph13-8Mo aerospace fasteners are made from PH13-8Mo, an incredibly versatile and resilient martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel. Ph13-8Mo exhibits excellent strength, superior toughness, good corrosion resistance even in severe environmental conditions.

PH13-8Mo has the highest combination of corrosion resistance, strength and toughness of all the stainless steels. So perhaps it’s no surprise that Ph13-8Mo aerospace fasteners are used in critical aircraft components, in landing gear parts, in the undercarriage, where resistance to stress cracking is essential. They’re even stronger than 17-4 PH stainless bolts.

What is PH13-8Mo made of?

Like other stainless steels, PH13-8Mo is an alloy, which means it is iron-based and contains a combination of other elements that give it desired characteristics for specific applications.

The most common elements in PH13-8Mo (in order of abundance) are chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and aluminum with trace amounts of manganese, silicon, and carbon depending on the exact specifications.
