FERRINOX 255™ is categorised as a super duplex (austenitic/ferritic) stainless steel.
This high-performance alloy combines high mechanical strength (typically up to over 600 MPa yield strength) and good ductility with outstanding corrosion resistance to marine environments and a wide, diverse range of industrial media. These attributes result in the widespread specification of FERRINOX 255™ as an alternative to 300 series stainless steel (such as type 316), standard 22% Cr duplex steel, precipitation hardening stainless steels (typical 17/4PH) and the alloy can in some instances, reduces the need to choose a much higher cost nickel-based alloy.
The highly attractive combination of attributes provided by FERRINOX 255™ has led to many years of successful application in defence, oil & gas production, chemicals processing, pollution control (FGD), pulp & paper production, architecture and nuclear engineering.
