The strength, elongation, and hardness values are specific to this cold reduction treatment; other values below are typical of Elgiloy®.General Elgiloy® information: High strength, ductility, fatigue life, and good mechanical properties. Corrosion resistant in numerous environments. Available in strip (currently 0.0015" to 0.075" thickness and 0.023" to 9.00 " width), round wire (0.006" to 0.625" diameter), sheet, cable, ribbon, bar, rod, and some fabricated parts.General Forming Notes: Forming should be done prior to heat treatment since heat treatment strengthens the material and makes it more difficult to form. Bending of strip should take place perpendicular to the rolling direction so that it will be across the elongated grain structure rather than parallel to it. In bending strip, a 90° bend should be at least 8 times the material thickness; in a 360° bend, a diameter of 18 to 25 times the material thickness is usually acceptable. Wire should not be formed beyond a mean diameter of 4 times the wire size.
