Sandvik launches Sanicro 825

Sandvik, producer of stainless steels, special alloys, titanium, and other materials, has launched Sanicro 825, its first ever nickel-iron-chromium alloy in bar and hollow bar, for improved performance in corrosive or high-temperature environments.

The new alloy is ideal for a variety of applications and installations including heat exchangers, evaporators, offshore piping systems, seawater coolant, valves, and flanges. It serves oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, pulp and paper, and more.

A high-strength alloy with minimum 40% nickel content, Sanicro 825 has excellent corrosion resistance to acids and alkalis, superior resistance to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and good corrosion resistance to phosphoric, nitric, sulfuric, and organic acids, seawater, caustic chloride alkalis and ammoniac media. Available in three-to seven-meter lengths with an outside diameter (OD) ranging from 20mm-260mm, Sanicro 825 offers a cost-effective alternative to superalloys such as Alloy 625 and Alloy 718. Its chemical formulation has been tailored within EN, UNS and ASTM standards.
