About Duplex Stainless Steel

What is Duplex 2205, UNS S31803, UNS S32205, 1.4462 Stainless Steel?

  • Duplex 2205 is a two-phase ferritic/austenitic – structures are approximately 50/50 austenite and ferrite and physical properties are a combination of the ferritic and the austenitic grades.
  • It is the most widely used nitrogen enhanced duplex stainless steel grade and is characterized by high yield strength, double that of the standard austenitic stainless steel grades.
  • Duplex 2205 stainless steel was developed to overcome common corrosion problems encountered with the 300 series stainless steels. It demonstrates good fatigue strength, as well as outstanding resistance to stress-corrosion cracking, crevice, pitting, erosion and general corrosion in severe environments.
  • Duplex 2205 stainless steel is not generally suitable for use at temperatures above 300°C as it suffers from precipitation of brittle micro-constituents, nor below -50°C because of its ductile-to-brittle-transition.
  • Duplex 2205 alloy finds applications due to both excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. “Duplex” describes a family of stainless steels that are neither fully austenitic, like 304 stainless, nor purely ferritic, like 430.

The Duplex family of Stainless Steels Consists of the following Grades & Designations:

  • Lean Duplex SS – lower nickel and no molybdenum – 2101, 2102, 2202, 2304
  • Duplex SS – higher nickel and molybdenum – 2205 (UNS S32205), 2003, 2404
  • Super Duplex – 25 Chromium and higher nickel and molybdenum “plus” – 2507 (UNS S32750/UNS S32760)
  • Hyper Duplex – More Cr, Ni, Mo and N – 2707

What is the Difference Between Duplex 2205 & Super Duplex Stainless Steels?

  • Super Duplex stainless steel has all of the same benefits as Duplex Stainless Steel – the main difference being that this metal has a higher chromium, nitrogen and molybdenum content, which provides it with increased corrosion resistance.
  • Duplex stainless steel is more durable with twice as much strength & better performance index than a regular traditional stainless steel. Hence a lighter product can bring about a better performance. The alloys used to arrive at duplex quality steel renders unique feature like high resistance to pitting, cracking & corrosion to the ultimate outcome thereby making duplex steel a much favored product in the stainless steel industry.
  • The same material is used while manufacturing duplex stainless steel and super duplex stainless steel; however the alloying element usage ratio is different in both cases & change in ratio results in increased strength, & corrosion resistance. Many of the applications in which 904L grade has previously performed well can now be fulfilled at lower cost by duplex stainless steel 2205 (S31803 or S32205). Due to increased usage of Duplex stainless steels, SS 904L is used less commonly used these days.

Fabrication Data and Other Properties of Duplex 2205 Stainless Steels

Hot Forming

  • Most Duplex 2205 producers recommend a maximum hot forming temperature between 2010 and 2100°F (1100 to 1150°C). If the shape of the work piece is not compact, the edges may be significantly cooler than the bulk, and there is risk of cracking in the cooler regions.

Cold Forming

  • Duplex 2205 has shown good formability in a variety of fabrications. The high strength of Duplex 2205 can pose problems. Even when the equipment has sufficient power, allowance must be made for higher spring-back caused by the grade’s high strength. Although ductile enough to be formed by cold working, intermediate annealing may be necessary due to work hardening.

Forging

  • Forging should be performed between 1750-2050° F followed by rapid cooling.

Annealing

  • Annealing can be performed at a temperature range between 2020-2150° F followed by a rapid quench. Cooling at an accelerated rate avoids the formation of detrimental phases which form between 1400-1800° F.

Welding

  • Welding can be done by gas tungsten-arc, gas metal-arc and shielded metal-arc processes.

Corrosion Resistance of Duplex 2205/UNS S32205/UNS 31803 Stainless Steels

  • Similar to relative austenitic alloys (2202 and 2304 are similar to 304 & 316). General corrosion resistance can vary greatly with changes in concentration, pH, temperature and impurities. It is important to discuss these variables for any application!
  • Grade 2205 stainless steel exhibits excellent corrosion resistance, much higher than that of grade 316. It resists localized corrosion types like intergranular, crevice and pitting. The Critical pitting temperature (CPT) of this type of stainless steel is around 35°C-45°C. This grade is resistant to chloride stress corrosion cracking (SCC) at temperatures of 150°C.
  • Grade 2205 stainless steels are apt replacements to austenitic grades, especially in premature failure environments and marine environments.

What is the PREN of Duplex 2205 Stainless Steel?

  • The PREN value of Duplex 2205/UNS S31803 / UNS S32205 stainless steel is typically around 35 levels, depending upon the content of alloying elements.

Prices for Duplex Stainless Steel Materials

Prices for Duplex 2205 stainless steel materials are directly co related to prices of the raw materials such as iron ore, metal scrap, chromium, nickel and various other alloying elements. The production cost of heat resistant stainless steel and nickel alloy plates is high as they contain high amount of nickel and chromium. Meanwhile, mild steel material is among the lowest cost steel available, followed by carbon steel, 400 series stainless steels, aluminium, alloy steel, and 300 series stainless steel. Special alloys such as titanium, Inconel, Monel and Hastelloy cost very high as the nickel, chromium and moly content is very high.
