Super Duplex Stainless Steel
Super Duplex Products
Duplex stainless steels are becoming more common. They are being offered by all the major stainless steel mills for a number of reasons:
- Higher strength leading to weight saving
- Greater corrosion resistance particularly stress corrosion cracking
Summary of Duplex Characteristics
|High inherent corrosion resistance||No need to protect by surface coating|
|Outstanding pitting/crevice resistance||Ideal for oil & gas, marine & defence applications|
|Excellent corrosion resistance in acids||Ideal for chemical industry|
|High resistance to stress corrosion cracking||Suitable for highly loaded components in chloride environments|
|High resistance to chloramines at high temperature / humidity||Suitable for use in safety critical supports in swimming pools|
|High mechanical strength||Scope for smaller diameter and hardware|
|Good fatigue strength||Applicable for cyclically loaded assemblies|
|High modulus of elasticity||Low propensity to stretch|
S3i can manufacture wire rope assemblies and fittings in super duplex materials to order.
