0Cr16Ni6 is a precipitated hardening stainless steel with controlled phase transition. After solution treatment, the microstructure is about 40% martensite, 60% austenite and a small amount of δferrite. After cold treatment [SCALE STEEL]or cold deformation, the microstructure is basically transformed into martensite.
