New CarTech® PremoMax™ Alloy Provides High-Strength and Toughness in Challenging Downhole Drilling Environments

PremoMax Considered to be a Superior Alternative to 4330 V

WYOMISSING, Pa., May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE:CRS) announced  the introduction today of PremoMax™, a new proprietary premium-melted alloy steel, specifically developed for use in multiple downhole drilling applications, such as mud motor shafts and related components. Its attractive combination of high-strength, excellent impact toughness, and good hardenability in large section sizes provides superior performance in challenging environments.

Machinability and weldability, coupled with strength, hardness, and fatigue resistance, make PremoMax alloy a cost-effective and durable drilling solution for rigid formation and high-rotation penetration demands.

Available in both billets and bars, PremoMax alloy is vacuum arc remelted, which provides superior cleanliness, excellent high-cycle fatigue strength, and outstanding fracture toughness. Due to its moderate carbon content, PremoMax alloy is easily welded, providing flexibility across numerous applications.

Carpenter Technology Corporation is participating in the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas May 2-5. Carpenter is located in Booth #1505.
