Duplex Steel DIN1 4462 Nuts provide unique properties of both ferritic and austenitic stainless steels. This specific grade is made up of high amounts of chromium and nickel, making it highly corrosion-resistant and a suitable replacement for regular engineering steel. It also has considerable molybdenum content, adding to its resistance to chloride pitting and crevice corrosion. As the name implies, this kind of steel comprises two phases – 50% ferritic and 50% austenitic – granting strength approximately twice the yield strength found in standard ferritic or austenitic stainless steel alloys. It’s no wonder these nuts are a popular choice for many industries.
Duplex Steel DIN1 4462 Nuts have many uses due to their superior properties. They have excellent corrosion resistance in aggressive environments and contain high amounts of chromium, making them highly resistant to pitting, crevice corrosion, erosion, and cavitation. This makes them ideal for use in extreme pressure operations like chemical processing, gas pipelines, and wastewater transport. Their robustness and strength make them capable of withstanding pressures of up to 1000 bar while remaining largely corrosion-free. They are also economical compared to other higher-strength materials and are reliable under cold and hot conditions.
