Material of VETUS Propeller Shafts
All VETUS propeller shafts are made of stainless steel type REMANIT 4462.
As far as corrosion resistance is concerned, REMANIT 4462 is equivalent to stainless steel of type AISI 316. However, REMANIT 4462 has a tensile strength which is approximately 30% greater and a hardness which is about 40% higher than that of AISI 316. It is the high degree of hardness that gives REMANIT 4462 its excellent running properties in bearings. All shafts supplied with key, washer and propeller nut with integrated zinc anode.
