Steel Investment Casting

We pour stainless steel investment castings in wide use throughout all major industries. The higher the grade of steel used creates castings with increasing durability and performance. Different grades are austenitic, hardened by cold processing. Other grades are martensitic with greater wear resistance.

At Shelmet we value excellent customer service and we like offering a review of your metal selections. You can send your plans for a quote or call to speak with a Shelmet Precision Casting metal casting expert. With more than half a century of long-term customer relationships, we look forward to working with you.

High-Carbon Alloy Steel

Steels with as much as 1.2% carbon is harder, but with less corrosion resistant than other steels. Carbon steel and stainless can be combined to create a hard, stain resistant alloy that retains an edge.

Low-Alloy Steel

Low-alloy steels contain 1-5% of other alloying materials that includes metals or non-metal components such as silicon. Most of these steels are highly durable and hard making it rigid and difficult to weld.
