2205 Duplex

UNS S31803, S32205

Alloy 2205 gets the name Duplex because it is composed of two different types of grains. 40-50% of its grain structure is austenite and 50-60% of it is ferrite. It is closely related to, but much more popular than Alloy 255. In most environments, it surpasses 317L in crevice corrosion resistance. 2205 Duplex excels in chloride environments and resists hydrogen sulfide. 2205 Duplex has almost twice the strength of 316L. Due to the lower nickel and molybdenum content, it is less costly than Alloy C276. Among the places where 2205 Duplex is used include pressure vessels, heat exchangers and scrubbing systems.
