Duplex stainless/super austentitic or nickel based alloys do a top job offshore, but they don’t come cheap. British Steel says it has an affordable alternative in the form of an advanced stainless steel which offers improved corrosion resistance as well as greater strength and toughness.
SF13/2/5 has a composition of 13% chromium, 2% molybdenum and 5% nickel. British Steel says the material neatly fills the gap between standard 13% chromium grades and expensive duplex materials.
