Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) Resistance – the duplex grain structure of ASC2250 LDX, with its continuous Ferritic phase means this product is much less sensitive to stress corrosion cracking (Sulfide and Chloride). Austenitic stainless grades, such as 304L and 316L are more susceptible to fracture.
Corrosion Fatigue – resists fatigue failure in corrosive environments due to its unique combination of high strength and resistance to corrosion.
Fatigue Resistance – has been evaluated (pulsating tensile fatigue) at two million cycles with a probability of rupture listed at 50.
Caustic Solution Corrosion – testing in simulated “white liquor” shows less weight loss and superior corrosion resistance when compared to other common stainless steels.
Pitting Resistance – (PRE 26)
High Strength – up to 3x times the strength of 316L stainless.
