Sandvik SAF 2205™ SH is a duplex (austenitic/ferritic) stainless steel with super high tensile strength.

The grade is characterized by:

  • Very good corrosion resistance
  • High resistance to stress corrosion cracking in chloride-bearing environments
  • High resistance to stress corrosion cracking in environments containing hydrogen sulphide
  • High resistance to general corrosion, pitting, and crevice corrosion
  • High resistance to erosion corrosion and corrosion fatigue
  • Extremely high tensile strength in 'as delivered' condition
  • Very good relaxation resistance
  • Physical properties that offer design advantages

Service temperature: -100 to 300°C (-150 to 570°F)
Service temperature: -200 to 280°C (-330 to 540°F)
