Duplex stainless steel benefits

As one of the largest suppliers of stainless steel for the oil and gas industry, our full range of grades includes our lean duplex grades Forta LDX 2101 and Forta LDX 2404 which combine low nickel content with high mechanical strength.

Not only can our stronger grades provide cost-savings for the initial material cost, additional project cost savings can also be realized. For example, many oil and gas projects require stainless steel storage tanks. When using a higher mechanical strength grade stainless like Forta LDX 2101, which weighs less than a commodity grade, these tank can be fabricated with a thinner gauge–thus saving cost in the overall project’s material and fabrication costs.

Austenitic stainless steel benefits

In applications where very high ductility, wide temperature ranges, or specific corrosion features are desired, Outokumpu’s austenitic stainless steel and superaustenitic stainless steel grades are often recommended.

Outokumpu's superaustenitic stainless steel grades have shown reliability in resisting highly corrosive environments including sea water applications and for projects requiring high strength.
