At NovaCast, a large proportion of our castings are produced using Aluminium alloy. The formation of Aluminium Oxide and the presence of non-metallic inclusions, collectively known as dross, is an inherent part of the casting process and one that must be managed to achieve the highest quality castings. For many years, part of the foundryman’s … Read more
DUPLEX STAINLESS STEEL 332C13
Duplex stainless steel 332C13 has a structure that is usually 40 to 50% ferrite with the balance of the microstructure austenite. Their higher ferrite levels provide significantly better chloride stress corrosion cracking resistance than austenitics and higher chromium and molybdenum contents provide good localized corrosion resistance. The addition of nitrogen improves corrosion resistance, increases strength, and improves castability. Welding may reduce corrosion resistance and ductility unless it is followed by a post-weld solution heat treatment. None of the duplex stainless steels should be used in continuous service above 600°F (315°C) because of the potential for 885°F (475°C) embrittlement of the ferrite phase.
