Sandvik has launched Sanicro 35, a unique grade that bridges the performance gap between stainless steels and higher cost nickel alloys.
Sanicro 35, the latest addition to Sandvik’s growing Sanicro portfolio of nickel alloys and austenitic stainless steels, offers exceptional high performance, strength and corrosion-resistance at a wide range of temperatures.
Designed for extremely corrosive environments and seawater applications, it is ideal for heat exchangers and hydraulic and instrumentation tubing. The new alloy features high mechanical yield strength, superior corrosion-resistance and excellent structural stability.
“Sanicro 35 is a unique, high performance alternative to existing duplex and austenitic stainless steel grades and more expensive nickel alloys. It offers a cost-efficient choice for minimising risk and extending production lifecycles when battling corrosion in demanding environments,” said Martin Holmquist, Business Development manager, Sandvik Materials Technology.
“Because of its versatile properties, Sanicro 35 is an “all-in-one” instrumentation tubing grade. Distributors can streamline inventories by using Sanicro 35 to replace most other special grades, including 6Mo, Alloy 825 and Alloy 625,” highlights Andreas Furukrona, Global Product Manager, Sandvik Materials Technology.
“With a long tradition in R&D for some of the most demanding industries around the world, we’re committed to continuously discovering and innovating new material solutions. Sanicro 35 is our latest example in which we identified a market opportunity that would benefit our customers, then innovated a solution,” added Göran Björkman, president of Sandvik Materials Technology.
