Outokumpu Forta range Forta FDX 27


The new Outokumpu Forta FDX 27 provides a totally new stainless steel solution for applications where the formability of other duplex grades is not sufficient or limits the design capability.

Forta FDX 27 exhibits a unique combination of high strength and substantially improved formability utilizing Transformation Induced Plasticity (TRIP).

Ferritic-austenitic stainless steels, also referred to as duplex stainless steels, combine many of the beneficial properties of ferritic and austenitic steels. Due to the relatively high content of chromium and nitrogen, these steels offer good resistance to localized and uniform corrosion.

General duplex benefits

  • High strength
  • High corrosion resistance


  • High resistance to stress corrosion cracking
  • Lower price volatility

Forta FDX 27

Description

A duplex product with improved formability and better corrosion resistance than Forta LDX 2101 and Forta DX 2304. It has high strength and excellent forming properties, and is used in applications where the use of standard duplex is restricted due to its formability limitations.
