Duplex Steel 2205 Bars are a type of stainless steel and contain a mixture of austenite and ferrite in a specific ratio. The majority of the chemical composition includes iron, chromium (18 - 20%), nickel (3 - 5%), manganese (2-3%), molybdenum (1-2%), silicon (0.6%-1%), niobium (0.05%) and trace amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur. The duplex microstructure provides higher strength when compared with regular austenitic stainless steel grades while also having superior corrosion resistance properties due to the higher amounts of chromium, molybdenum, and nitrogen seen in it. This combination makes 2205 Duplex Steel Bars highly resistant to pitting corrosion and other localized corrosion incidents.
Duplex steel 2205 bars are known for their impressive strength, corrosion resistance, and overall durability. They offer a great deal of flexibility in varied engineering applications, including marine, pulp and paper production, pressure vessel components, chemical process industries, pumps and valves. Due to its unique chemistry and manufacturing process, Duplex Steel 2205 bars boast unbeatable performance compared to standard stainless steel alloys. This duplex stainless steel alloy is highly resistant to stress corrosion cracking when adequately treated with heat or cold working techniques. It also features excellent weldability, making it ideal for fabrication projects across multiple industries. Duplex Steel 2205 bars are robust thanks to their high chromium and molybdenum content, making them twice as strong as traditional austenite stainless steels.
