32760 / F55

Zeron 100 (UNS S32760 / F55) is a super duplex stainless steel known for its high strength, corrosion resistance, and durability, making it suitable for harsh environments.

Super Duplex 32760, also known as F55, is a high-performance stainless steel alloy that combines excellent mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. It is a duplex stainless steel, which means it has a two-phase microstructure consisting of both austenitic and ferritic phases. This unique microstructure gives the alloy excellent strength and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for use in harsh environments.

The chemical composition of Super Duplex 32760 includes high levels of chromium, molybdenum, and tungsten, which provide enhanced resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion. The addition of nitrogen also improves the mechanical properties of the alloy, giving it a high tensile strength, yield strength, and hardness. The high chromium content also provides good resistance to oxidizing acids such as nitric and sulfuric acid.

Super Duplex 32760 has a high resistance to stress corrosion cracking, making it suitable for use in oil and gas, chemical processing, and seawater applications. It is also resistant to chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking, making it suitable for use in harsh marine environments. The high strength of the alloy also makes it suitable for use in pressure vessels and piping systems, where high-pressure environments are present.

In terms of fabrication and machining, Super Duplex 32760 is generally easier to work with compared to other super duplex alloys, due to its lower nickel content. However, care should be taken during welding, as the high molybdenum and tungsten content can make the alloy prone to hot cracking.

In conclusion, Super Duplex 32760 is a high-performance stainless steel alloy that offers excellent mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Its high resistance to stress corrosion cracking, combined with its strength and durability, make it an ideal choice for use in harsh environments, particularly in the oil and gas, chemical processing, and marine industries.
