Stainless steels are characterized by a greater resistance to oxidation and corrosion, especially in humid air or freshwater, compared to the so-called “carbon steels” (or common non-alloy steel).
This ability is mainly due to the almost absence of 1.2% carbon, and to the presence of chromium in the alloy, which can passivate itself and that is to cover itself with a thin and adherent layer of oxides, practically invisible that superficially protects the metal or the underlying alloy, by the action of oxygen and external chemical agents.
DUPLEX stainless steels have a biphasic microstructure (equal proportions of austenite and ferrite), born from the use of nitrogen as an alloying element, have widespread use in pipelines and applications in offshore platforms: the high resistance of these steel allows the reduction of wall thicknesses and therefore of the weight of the platforms
NICKEL ALLOYS AND COBALT ALLOYS
SUPER ALLOYS are Ni-based, Fe-Ni-based, Co-based alloys resistant to high temperatures and used in highly stressed structural elements, often destined to operate over 600 ° C. They are characterized by combinations of mechanical, fatigue and creep strength, corrosion resistance, and the ability to withstand high temperatures for continuous periods not reached by other metals.
SUPER ALLOYS are used in the aerospace sector and for industrial applications that require mechanical resistance at high temperatures and corrosion resistance. These applications include rocket thrusters, gas and steam turbines, reciprocating engines, high strength links, metalworking equipment, and furnaces, chemical and petrochemical plants, biomedical components.
