​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Stainless steel for pulp and paper ​​​​applications

Outokumpu has been building partnerships with the world's leading pulp and paper companies for almost a century.

Typical applications

Our offering covers a broad spectrum of stainless steel grades for varying corrosive environments, covering all phases of the papermaking process including: 

  • washing and cooking through pulp towers
  • liquor tanks
  • suction roll shells 
  • recirculation of process water

Our high-strength duplex stainless steel grades have become especially popular in a wide range of applications in recent years.

Today almost all pressure vessels used in pulp and paper are made of duplex stainless steel. Duplex is also increasingly used in non-pressurized vessels and main process equipment.

Outokumpu has an exceptional track record in supplying the pulp and paper industry with materials, expertise and support to build more cost-efficient plants.
