We have been asked by a client to substitute 15-5 Precipitation Hardened steel for 316 SS in a machined (encapsulated) part for underwater connector applications. They have also asked that the part be heat treated to H900. Does anyone have experience with this metal? What is its corrosion resistance, before and after heat treating? Compared to 316 SS? We are concerned about our warranty and the viability of the materials substitution. Any websites you know that may be helpful would also be appreciated. Thanks
