Duratherm 477 and MP35N

  1. Jun 12, 2015 #1

    Can anyone please let me know the list of materials that are advanced than Duratherm 477 or MP35N?

    I have a small pin which should be made up of Duratherm or MP35N for a particular application. But the pin is bending when it is used in a assembly. There are lot of other reasons why it is bending but we came to a conclusion to change the material of the pin. So is there any nearest material which has slightly good or higher properties than these 2 materials?

    Any other suggestions also will be of great help.

    Thanks in advance for any help on this regards.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Can you get a catalog from the maker of the material you are using? Or possibly a competitor of that maker. Maybe Google is your friend here. Usually the maker of such material will have a range of materials with different properties. And you can look this up in the catalog. They will also likely have a range of shapes and sizes of objects. Maybe they have exactly the object you need as a standard item. You might be able to order it ready-made.

    sounds like you want a higher modulus material, or at least a higher yield strength.
