Alloy 32760 is a super duplex stainless steel supplied in the hot worked and solution annealed condition. As a super duplex stainless steel, it combines the desirable aspects of both austenitic and ferritic grades. The higher chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen contents result in a Pitting Resistance Equivalent number (PREN) of >40, providing pitting and crevice corrosion resistance superior to austenitic and duplex stainless steels in almost all corrosive media, and a Critical Pitting Temperature exceeding 50°C nb. versions of the PREN formula also include Was a positive influence on overall pitting resistance.
It provides higher strength than both austenitic and 22% Cr duplex stainless steels, and is listed in NACE MR 0175 for sour service and ASME for pressure vessel applications.
