Material to UNS S32760 is described as a super duplex stainless steel with a microstructure of 50:50 austenite and ferrite.

UNS S32760 is a duplex stainless steel especially designed for service in aggressive chloride-containing environments and has additions of W and Cu compared to UNS S32750. It has very good resistance to localized corrosion and stress corrosion cracking in combination with high mechanical strength.

的发展ristic features of high strength and corrosion resistance exhibited by the dual microstructure (50% Austenite, 50% Ferrite) associated with Duplex Stainless Steels, are enhanced by a further addition of Chromium (to 25%), and also Tungsten and Copper.

The alloy's pitting and Crevice Corrosion resistance is better than Standard F51 duplex, The pitting index (PREN) is increased to 40 min from standard F51 Duplex value of 33 min.

Thin sections (Tubulars) are capable of being cold worked to give yield strength of 105 KSI min.

To optimise mechanical properties, avoid clinking, and to avoid deleterious intermetallics within the microstructure; special high temp forming and heat treatment control practices must be followed during processing.

Material to UNS S32760 is described as a super duplex stainless steel with a microstructure of 50:50 austenite and ferrite.

The steel combines high mechanical strength (typically up to 600 MPa yield strength) and good ductility with outstanding corrosion resistance to marine environments and a wide, diverse range of oil & gas production environments. The alloy is supplied with a PREN(Pitting Resistance Equivalent) at >= 40.0 which guarantees high resistance to pitting corrosion. In addition, the steel offers high resistance to crevice corrosion and stress corrosion cracking.

Ambient and sub-zero (down to minus 50°C) notch ductility is good. These attributes mean that this super duplex steel can be used successfully as an alternative to 300 series stainless steel (such as type 316), standard 22% Cr duplex steel and precipitation hardening stainless steels. Where appropriate the alloy can be considered in lieu of more costly Grade 5 titanium or nickel based alloys.
