The controlled-chemistry, free-machining, ferritic 13 percent chromium alloy, developed for use in magnetic components, offers corrosion resistance and good magnetic properties. Chrome Core 13-XP alloy can be considered for electromechanical devices where corrosion resistance must be better than that of pure iron, low carbon steel and silicon-iron alloys. It also is suitable for solenoid components that require magnetic properties better than those for Type 430FR alloy or Chrome Core 18-FM alloy.
