Bodycote has opened a new facility for Specialty Stainless Steel Processes (S³P), which increase mechanical and wear properties in stainless steel without adversely affecting corrosion resistance. The company states that the new facility, based in Mooresville, North Carolina, USA, will help to support manufacturing supply chains in the southeastern US.

Bodycote’s S3P technologies are used in the treatment of stainless steel, nickel-based and cobalt chromium alloys (including martensitic and precipitation hardened stainless steel materials) to improve resistance against surface wear such as galling, cavitation erosion and abrasive wear.

Demand for S³P processes is said to have grown exponentially in the US, across multiple markets including automotive, food processing, medical and oil & gas among others. The new site will be accredited for both ISO9001 and AS9100 to serve the customer base.

Kent Abrahamsen, Senior Vice President, Bodycote Specialty Stainless Steel Processes, stated, “We are excited to respond to our customers’ requests to expand Bodycote’s geographic footprint and increase capacity to serve their growing demands. Our new, larger facility in Mooresville supports the increasing demands for Specialty Stainless Steel Processes.”
