Corrosion resistant stainless steel

General information

Stainless steels are steel grades that have been melted in a special process (secondary metallurgy) and have a high degree of purity. According to DIN EN 10020, which regulates the "definition of the classification of steels", stainless steels are found as a subcategory of unalloyed steels and as a subcategory of alloyed steels. Depending on the application, a distinction is made:

Non-alloy steels:

  • Steels with special physical properties
  • Structural steels
  • Engineering steels
  • Boiler and pressure vessel steels and
  • Tool steels

Alloyed steels:

  • Tool steels
  • Various steels
  • Heat-resistant and high-temperature steels
  • Structural steels
  • Engineering steels
  • Boiler and pressure vessel steels

Corrosion resistant steels occupy a special position among alloyed steels. To use the term "stainless steel" for this group of materials is actually wrong. Corrosion resistant steels are alloyed stainless steels and have a chromium mass content of at least 10.5% and a carbon content of at most 1.2% by mass.

Therefore, a type of steel may well belong to the group of stainless steels, but it may not necessarily also be a corrosion resistant steel (like, for example, the unalloyed tool steel with the material number 1.1520).

Nevertheless, corrosion resistant steels are widely referred to as "corrosion resistant stainless steel" - in addition to a number of other colloquial synonyms such as V2A, V4A, Niro and INOX.

Corrosion resistant steels are characterized, above all, by their high corrosion resistance - which makes them the first and often exclusive choice for many applications. They also have a number of other favorable properties: Heat resistance, food grade, good workability, high strength, complete recyclability and some others.

Corrosion resistant steels are divided into austenitic grades, ferritic and martensitic grades, and duplex steels. They are fabricated in various surface finishes and supply states:

  • 1D - hot rolled, annealed, pickled
  • 2B - cold-rolled, annealed, pickled, slightly re-rolled
  • 2H - strain-hardened
  • 2R - cold-rolled, bright-annealed, slightly re-rolled if necessary

Corrosion resistant steels are integrated into the European material numbering system and comprise numbers 1.40xx to 1.49xx. These steels are available in a variety of supply forms. The most important products are hot- and cold-rolled strips and sheets, seamless and welded tubes as well as wire, bar steel and profiles.

 

Production

For corrosion resistant steels, the so-called "electric arc furnace route" is of particular importance. In this process, recycled steel is alloyed with ferrochromium prepared from chrome ores (and - depending on the desired result - other additives such as nickel and/or molybdenum).

The carbon content of the melt from the electric furnace is then reduced in a further process step, and the final alloying additives are added in order to adjust the exact chemistry. The steel melt is then cast into slabs. This is followed by a hot rolling process that produces a hot strip coil. The last step before a coil leaves the plant ready for delivery is cold rolling, including annealing and pickling steps.

 

Uses

Corrosion resistant steels are used in a variety of industries, including:

  • Architecture, construction industry
  • Automotive sector
  • Chemical engineering
  • Off-shore industry
  • Shipbuilding
  • Environmental technology
  • Water management
  • Household items
  • Consumer goods
  • Food processing
  • Medical/Pharmaceutical technology

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Heat resistant
  • Acid resistant
  • Suitable for foodstuffs
  • Good formability
  • Weldable
  • High strength
  • Fully recyclable
  • Durable
