Launch of Sandvik SAF™ 2205+

Tougher times call for tougher materials and that's just why we're introducing Sandvik SAF™ 2205+. Our new and improved grade fulfills the highest material requirements of oil and gas end-users.

Sandvik has unveiled a new grade of stainless steel, adapted to high purity and the demand of oil and gas end-users. Sandvik SAF™ 2205+ is a super-clean material with enhanced pitting corrosion resistance, great mechanical properties and better weldability.

As technology evolves and applications become more advanced, material design comes under increased pressure to perform better. Whereas the ASTM, EN-norm and NORSOK standards were once all that mattered, times have changed and requirements are stricter. The ever-increasing list of new standards and company-specific demands includes reduction ratio, tighter chemical specification and extra testing, to name but a few. That's where Sandvik SAF™ 2205+ comes in.

The new and improved grade focuses on fulfilling criteria like min 4 to 1 reduction ratio for all sizes from 75-260mm, and lower limits for both phosphorus and sulfur. Tested against the new IOGP S-563 and ISO 17781 standards, Sandvik SAF™ 2205+ is future-proofed against new revisions to end user specifications.

Sandvik SAF™ 2205+ is available to order from 1 September 2019.
