Description

Designed for Processing in Laser Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) or Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Systems


MetcoAdd™ H13-A and H13-B are martensitic, iron-chromium, air-hardenable steel powders powder products with chemistries similar to AISI H13, ASTM H13, SAE H-13 and Werkstoff No. 1.2344 / X40CrMoV 5-1-1. 


Room temperature static properties of PBF-LB processed and heat treated material coupons have been shown to be comparable to those of AMS 6408. 


For reference purposes Oerlikon has processed MetcoAdd H13-A using fixed parameters and 40 μm layer thickness to provide data below. Additional testing has been performed by an extensive network of consortia and customer partners on a broader range of machine types. Properties may be optimized based on application specific requirements.

This material data has been provided by Oerlikon Metco.

All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
