Stainless Steel Alloy Zeron® 100, Super Duplex Stainless , Super Duplex

Zeron® 100, which is also sold under the names Super Duplex Stainless and Super Duplex, is a highly alloyed stainless steel that is designed for use in difficult and aggressive environments.

Because of its outstanding strength, Zeron 100 is known as a super duplex stainless steel. Originally created for applications that demand corrosion resistance to seawater in the North Sea, Zeron 100 is also perfect for other industries and applications.  These include:

  • Oil and gas,
  • Pulp and paper
  • Power generation
  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Mining
  • Desalination,

Zeron 100’s other outstanding properties include:

  • Resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion
  • Superior resistance to sulfuric acid in many different concentrations
  • Stress corrosion cracking resistance
  • Minimum Yield Strength of 80,000 psi
  • More cost-effective than most nickel based alloys
  • Outstanding machinability

For a stainless steel alloy to be sold as Zeron 100 it must have a unique chemical composition, which includes these elements:

  • Cr 24-26%
  • Ni 6-8%
  • Mo 3-4%
  • Cu 0.5-1.0%
  • W 0.5-1.0%
  • Mn 1.0% max
  • Si 1.0% max
  • N 0.2-0.3%

At Continental Steel we supply Zeron 100 in a number of different sizes and forms including sheet, strip, plate, pipe, and round bar. All the Zeron 100 available via Continental Steel meets a number of different critical industrial standards from organizations like ASTM, UNS, MDS, and EN.
