Stainless steels represent a family of corrosion-resistant steels that contain at least 10,5 % of chromium. Apart from chromium, these steels are alloyed with nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium and other elements. Their mechanical properties and application depend on their chemical composition. A careful choice of the right steel grade is responsible for the durability and serviceability of a manufactured product.
We produce stainless steel as:
- Quarto Plates
- Hot Rolled Strips and Plates
- Cold Rolled Strips and Plates
STAINLESS STEEL MATERIAL SELECTION
Austenite ( γ - iron)
Face centred cubic with 12 atom neighbours.
Good to excellent corrosion resistance combined with very good weldability and formability characterize the austenitic stainless steels. The austenitic structure has good creep resistance and good oxidation resistance that make them useful at elevated temperatures. Austenitic steel can also be used in cryogenic applications and in annealed condition it is the only non-magnetic steel.
Wellbalanced twophase structure with ferrite content between 30-50%.
Duplex stainless steels have high strength, good toughness and very good corrosion resistance, especially towards stress corrosion cracking and corrosion fatigue. These steels have also good weldability and reasonable formability.
Ferrite (α - iron)
Body centered cubic with 8 atom neighbours.
Ferritic stainless steels have good corrosion resistance, especially towards stress corrosion cracking. Lower carbon and nitrogen contents improve both weldability and toughness which otherwise can be limited.
