What is DEF-STAN 02-835?

DEF-STAN is shorthand for Defence Standard, a series of material standards developed by the UK’s Ministry of Defence. What is DEF-STAN 02-835? Defence Standard 02-835 covers the “Requirements for High Strength Copper Nickel Manganese Alloy Forgings, Forging Stock Rods and Sections”, which is the alloy better known as Hiduron 191. This alloy was developed by […]

What is SAF2205?

SAF2205 is a tradename of Sandvik Materials Technology, for their 22Cr duplex stainless steel (S32205, DIN 1.4462, ASTM A182 F60). SAF is an acronym of Sandvik Austenitic Ferritic, whilst 2205 is shorthand for the Unified Numbering System (UNS) designation S32205. The History of Duplex Stainless Steels Duplex stainless steels were developed in the 1930’s, for […]

What is HVD1?

HVD1 is the designation of a super duplex stainless steel developed for use in fertiliser production. It has a composition of Cr (24.0-28.0%), Ni (2.0-3.0%), Mo (7.5-9.5%), Cu (1.0-2.0%) and so is comparable with other SDSS grades. HVD1 is often specified by OEMs for the construction of valves, pumps and other process equipment involved in […]

What is 22Cr?

22Cr is shorthand for a stainless steel based upon a composition of 22% chromium – a duplex stainless steel. 

Super Duplex

What is 25Cr?

25Cr is shorthand for a kind of super duplex stainless steel, based upon a composition of 25% chromium. How Does 25CR differ from Standard Stainless Steel? Chromium is a normal component of Stainless Steel — where it is used to increase the steel’s resistance to oxidation. An increase in the level of chromium increases this […]

What is the difference between S32750 and S32760?

S32750 and S32760 are both super duplex stainless steels (SDSS). As such, their microstructure is a combination of austenitic and ferritic grains, which imparts the most favourable properties of each. They are based upon a 25% chromium content (25Cr), but differences in their mechanical properties, physical properties and composition are small. 

Super Duplex

What is SDSS?

SDSS is an acronym for Super Duplex Stainless Steel. A duplex stainless steel is a combination of a ferritic and an austenitic microstructure, and combines the most favourable properties of each.  There are a number of different SDSS available, as the family of alloys based upon a 25% chromium (25Cr) content has developed since the 1960’s.
