Maraging Steel 1.2709
Most high-strength steels have low toughness; the higher their strength, the lower their toughness. The rare combination of high strength and toughness of maraging steel makes it well suited for safety-critical aircraft structures that require high strength. Maraging 300 is used for transmission shafts, rocket motors and missiles cases, light aircraft landing gear and motorsport components. Another typical application refers to tools such as cores and inserts for die casting and injection moulding. It’s ideal for functional metal prototypes, small series products, custom products or spare parts with high tensile strength. Parts can be machined, welded, shot-peened, polished and coated.
