Specialty Alloys: Stainless & Super Duplex Stainless Steel

AdobeStock_52962891Specialty alloys range from common Stainless Steels to Super Duplex Stainless Steels. 

Alloy 316/316L Stainless Steel

Though there are a variety of grades of stainless steel, such as 301, 302, 303, 304, 309, 316/316L and 321.  We will focus on alloy 316/316L because of its wide use in specialty applications.  Alloy 316/316L stainless steel is an austenitic molybdenum-bearing stainless steel containing nickel.

5 Types of Superalloys

AdobeStock_205771969Superalloys, or high performance alloys, provide exceptional mechanical strength and creep resistance at high temperatures, corrosion and oxidation resistance and reliable surface stability.  Superalloys are used extensively in the oil and gas industry, chemical and petrochemical processing, power plants and many other harsh environment applications.  They include a number of special combinations of alloys to make up materials from Monel® to Hastelloy®.

The Two Most Common Alloy Types: Brass & Carbon Steel

Specialty Alloys – Composition &  Applications

All alloy steels are made from carbon steel and other alloying materials, including aluminum, chromium, copper, manganese, nickel, silicon or titanium.  These metals are combined with carbon steel to create specific properties that allow for increased hardness, strength and/or corrosion resistance.
