Duplex and Super Duplex Steel

Duplex steel consists of approximately 50% ferrite and 50% austenite and has high corrosion resistance and stability.

The ratio of ferrite/austenite depends largely on the content of the respective alloying element like chromium, nickel, carbon, molybdenum and nitrogen along with the thermal treatment/cooling used.
 
The most commonly used Duplex Stainless Steel grade is 2205 (22% Chromium, 5% Nickel)
