Sandvik 2C48 is a ferritic, heat resisting, stainless chromium steel, characterized by:

  • Good resistance to reducing sulphurous gases
  • Very good resistance to oxidation in air
  • good resistance to oil-ash corrosion
  • Resistance to molten copper, lead and tin

This steel can be used at temperatures up to 1075°C (1970°F). However, allowance should be made for the low creep strength at the highest temperatures in order to avoid distortion due to the mass of the steel.
