At 20-percent chromium, it has similar general, pitting and crevice corrosion resistance to 201, 201L, 304 and 304L stainless steels. However, this is dependent on the corrosion media. For example, Cromgard® C20-1 has significantly better corrosion resistance than 316L in sulphuric acid (H2SO4) solutions. The atmospheric corrosion resistance of Cromgard® C20-1 is unequaled by virtually all other uncoated engineering materials and it is normally sufficient in urban and industrial environments. The excellent strength, toughness, corrosion resistance and resistance to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) make Cromgard® C20-1 suitable for applications such as process and storage tanks, some food and beverage applications as well as several structural applications.
