Maintaining Duplex Stainless Steel Welding Quality

By Orbital Welding, Stainless Steel No Comments

Duplex stainless steel is an alloy of steel with two-phase microstructures and an equal proportion of austenite and ferrite. These special materials capture the benefit of both austenitic and ferritic stainless steel grades and provide excellent strength, toughness, and corrosion resistance. And these properties have also made duplex stainless steel…
