Sanicro® 28 is a multi-purpose austenitic stainless ELC alloy for service in highly corrosive conditions. It is characterized by:
- Very high corrosion resistance in strong acids
- Very good resistance to stress and intergranular corrosion in various environments
- Very high resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion
- Good weldability

a) Rp0.2 corresponds to 0.2% offset yield strength.
b) Based on L0 = 5.65√S0 , where L0 is the original gauge length and S0 the original cross-sectional area.
Due to its austenitic microstructure, Sanicro® 28 has very good impact strength, both at room temperature and at cryogenic temperatures.
Tests on bar have demonstrated that the steel fulfils the requirements according to the European standards EN13445-2(UFPV-2)(min.60J(44ft-lb)at-270oC(-455oF))andEN10272(min.60J(44ft-lb)at-196oC.(-320oF).
