Kratos (K6)

Kratos is based on C630 stainless steel developed and patented by Carpenter, USA. Its corrosion resistance is the best among all heat hardened stainless steel alloys.Besides, it has a very balanced tensile strength (nearly 1300 MPa) and ductility.And, it is seamless.Due to its extremely well workability, the material has been widelyappliedinmanydifferentfields including petrochemical, nautical, defense, aerospace and even nuclear.Kratos has the same property as Reynolds 931.However, as K6 is made and heat treated in Taiwan, tube selection is larger than 931. Therefore, with proper choice of tube size and thickness, K6 is suitable for frames of different functions.

Note: K6 and Reynolds 931 are made with the same C630 raw material.
