UNS S32760 SuperDuplex Stainless Steel

UNS s32760 super duplex stainless Steel plate

Alloy 32760 is a super duplex stainless steel supplied in the hot worked and solution annealed condition. As a super duplex stainless steel, it combines the desirable aspects of both austenitic and ferritic grades. The higher chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen contents result in a Pitting Resistance Equivalent number (PREN) of >40, providing pitting and crevice corrosion resistance superior to austenitic and duplex stainless steels in almost all corrosive media, and a Critical Pitting Temperature exceeding 50°C nb.versions of the PREN formula also include W as a positive influence on overall pitting resistance.

It provides higher strength than both austenitic and 22% Cr duplex stainless steels, and is listed in NACE MR 0175 for sour service and ASME for pressure vessel applications.

SuperDuplex stainless steel – with a microstructure of 50:50 austenite and ferrite, the steel has improved strength over ferritic and austenitic steel grades. With a higher than average Molybdenum and Chromium content, the material has greater heat and corrosion resistant qualities.

With reduced production costs when compared with equivalent austenitic and ferritic grades and with greater yield and tensile strength, SuperDuplex is a cost effective solution for the consumer. It is conceivable that material thicknesses for a project may be reduced if SuperDuplex is used, thus reducing cost without compromising quality.
