Cromgard® C20-3: At 19.5-21.5-percent chromium, its yield strength is more than double that of austenitic stainless steels such as grades 304L and 316L. This often allows down gauging in the design, depending on Young’s Modulus and buckling limitations. Cromgard® C20-3 has similar general and pitting corrosion resistance that fills the gap between Type 316L austenitic stainless steel and DSS grade 2205. Its excellent strength, toughness, corrosion resistance and resistance to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) make Cromgard® C20-3 suitable for a wide range of applications such as: subsea flow lines, bridge decking, desalinization, water heaters, pipes & tubes, water treatment, potable water systems, power generation, chemical processing, transport tanks, home appliances. heat exchangers, pressure vessels, architectural structures and pulp & paper production.
