Duplex Stainless Steels

The alloy is a mixture of austenite and ferrite in their structure. They show characteristics of both phases with higher strength and ductility. Nitrogen is added to the second-generation duplex alloys and provides increased strength and weldability. AK Steel’s 19d NITRONIC® cyclic oxidation is good, high strength and excellent stress corrosion resistance, and the 2205 alloy provides very good pitting and uniform corrosion resistance, high strength and high resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Quality stainless steel manufacturing, from heat to heat and year to year claims, precise control of raw material ingredients and melting practices.

Exact quantities of scrap and alloying elements to deliver presorted the melting furnaces so that the heats or lots to be within the ranges specified composition. Among the composition usually ranges from a group of chemical elements for each grade stainless steel. Besides the visual appeal of polished stainless, some of functionsserved at stainlesssurfaces properly prepared. And sanitary applications, polished stainless steel not only looks clean, but also easy to clean and keep clean.

There are also economic considerations in specifying Nish. For example, bright annealed cold rolled nish may be speci ed in the No. 8 polished nish more expensive or some might proprietary nishes rolled serve the same purpose as the No. 4 polished nish.
