Heat Resistant Stainless Steel
These grades have excellent strength and creep resistance at high temperatures. They offer better resistance to oxidizing or reducing atmospheres depending on their chemistry balance.
|For high strength and corrosion resistance at temperatures above 1200 F
|Exposure to service conditions may degrade room temperature ductility and weldability; cannot be hardened
|Petrochemical refining, heat treatment furnaces
|Fair. Slow feeds and deep cuts recommended
|Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) produces good results
|Superior resistance to air, combustion gases, flue gases (reducing and oxidizing) and steam
