Sandvik extend Duplex range of solid round bar
Sandvik duplex and super duplex stainless steels in solid round bar form are now available ex-stock in an extensive size range from the company’s UK warehouse.
The popular material grades available include Sandvik SAF 2507™, (UNS 32750) a super duplex stainless steel in diameters from 20 mm up to 250 mm, and duplex grade Sanmac™ SAF 2205 (UNS S31803/S32205) offered in sizes from 20 mm up to 450 mm. Sandvik round bar for machining is peel turned, polished or rough machined, depending on size, and is delivered in random lengths or cut to fixed lengths.
Both grades are approved and tested in accordance to NORSOK, up to 260 mm diameter, for use in oil and gas applications and material is delivered complete with test certificates.
Where other bar diameters or Sandvik material grades are required a complete range is available direct from Sweden on a 7–10 day delivery.
Super duplex materials such as Sandvik SAF 2507 offer the ideal solution for component manufacture for use in extremely corrosive conditions and those exposed to high stress in chloride containing environments like seawater. Combining high strength with high corrosion resistance duplex and super duplex steels have more than twice the strength and lower thermal expansion than austenitic steels making them ideal for applications in the oil and gas industry, seawater services, refineries and petrochemical plant.
Sanmac SAF 2205 affords excellent machining properties which lower machining costs and significantly increase productivity. This is achieved without compromising the material’s corrosive resistance and high mechanical strength.
Whether the requirement is for milling, turning, tapping, thread cutting, drilling, sawing, etc., Sandvik can offer the most suitable stainless steel bar for machining requirements and component manufacture.
So that the material is supplied in the most suitable form Sandvik operates a dedicated cut-to-length service and can supply its stainless steel solid bar in the most appropriate lengths to best accommodate customers’ requirements.
Being able to supply product from stock in the form and length required by the customer is an important part of the Sandvik service and the extensive stock programme for duplex and super duplex in popular sizes ensures that material is available for immediate off-the-shelf delivery to customers.
