Sandvik Materials Technology

Three new grades have been added to the range of stainless steel tube and pipe for high-temperature applications. The new grades, designated Sandvik 1C256 (W.Nr 1.4724), Sandvik 1C356 (W.Nr 1.4742) and Sandvik 2C48 (ASTM TP 446.2) are ferritic stainless steels with high chromium content. Added to the existing range of austenitic stainless steel grades, they provide end users and equipment suppliers in the steelmaking, petrochemical, furnace and power industries with an expanded range of selection options for high-temperature materials depending on service conditions, service life, maintenance and cost requirements.
