2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) two-phase stainless steel overview:
2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) two-phase steel is a new product
successfully developed in 2000. 2205 two-phase steel is a kind of
two-phase stainless steel with nitrogen added (2205 two-phase steel
for short). 2205 two-phase steel is a compound stainless steel
composed of 21% chromium,2.5% molybdenum and 4.5% nickel-nitrogen
The existing 2205 dual-phase steel products include welded pipe,
seamless pipe, steel plate, bar, forging material, strip and so on.
Early duplex stainless steels can withstand uniform corrosion and
chlorine stress corrosion cracking at moderate strength, but their
performance is greatly reduced when used in welding situations.
To improve this situation, 2205 two-phase steel is added to
nitrogen, which not only improves corrosion resistance, but also
makes the welding condition very good.
It has high strength, good impact toughness and good overall and
local stress corrosion resistance.
The yield strength of 2205 duplex steel is twice that of austenitic
stainless steel, a property that allows designers to design
products with less weight, giving the alloy a price advantage over
This alloy is particularly suitable for the temperature range of
This alloy may also be considered for applications beyond this
temperature range, but there are some limitations, especially when
applied to welded structures.
Due to the special properties and characteristics of 2205 duplex
steel, it is widely used.
2205 S31803 F51 1.4462 Chemical composition of stainless steel
Physical and mechanical properties of duplex stainless steel:
1. 2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) dual-phase steel density: 8.0g/cm3.

2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) two-phase stainless steel corrosion
1. Uniform corrosion: due to the chromium content (22%), molybdenum
(3%) and nitrogen content (0.18%) of 2205 dual-phase steel, the
corrosion resistance of 2205 is better than 316L and 317L in most
2. Local corrosion resistance: the content of chromium, molybdenum
and nitrogen in 2205 dual-phase steel makes it highly resistant to
spot corrosion and gap corrosion in oxidizing and acidic solutions.
3, stress corrosion resistance: 2205 dual-phase steel dual-phase
microstructure is helpful to improve the stress corrosion cracking
resistance of stainless steel.
Under certain conditions of temperature, strain, oxygen and
chloride, the chloride stress corrosion of austenitic stainless
steel will occur.
As these conditions are not easily controlled, the use of 304L,
316L and 317L is restricted in this respect.
4. Corrosion fatigue resistance: 2205 dual-phase steel has high
corrosion fatigue strength due to its high strength and corrosion
2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) duplex stainless steel structure:
The ideal microstructure of 2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) duplex steel
can be obtained after solid melt annealing treatment of
If the heat treatment temperature is higher than 2000°F, it may
lead to an increase in ferrite composition.
Like other duplex stainless steels, 2205 duplex steels are
susceptible to intermetallic phase precipitation.
The intermetallic phase precipitated between 1300°F and 1800°F, and
the precipitation rate was the fastest at 1600°F.
2205 (S31803, F51, 1.4462) duplex stainless steel processing
1. Thermal forming: it is recommended that the forming should be
done at a temperature below 600°F.
During the thermoforming process, the whole workpiece shall be
heated as a whole and shall be carried out in a temperature range
from 1750°F to 2250°F, at which temperature 2205 duplex steel is
If the temperature is too high, 2205 duplex steel is prone to
Below this temperature, the austenite breaks.
Below 1700°F, the metal meets quickly due to temperature and
After the thermoforming is completed, it shall be immediately
annealed and quenched at a minimum temperature of 1900°F to reduce
its phase balance, toughness and corrosion resistance.
Stress relief is not recommended, but if it is necessary, the
material should be soldered at a minimum temperature of 1900°F,
followed by rapid cooling and water quenching.
2. Cold forming: 2205 two-phase steel can be cut and cold formed.
However, due to the high strength and hardness of 2205 duplex
steel, it needs to be cold formed more than austenitic steel, and
due to its high strength, the resilience factor should be fully
3. Heat treatment: 2205 duplex steel shall be annealed at a minimum
temperature of 1900°F, and then rapidly cooled to water quenching.
This treatment is applied to solid - melt annealing and stress
Stress relief treatment at temperatures below 1900°F can easily
lead to the precipitation of harmful metal or non-metal phases.
4. Mechanical machinability: on high-speed machine tools, the feed
rate and cutting speed of 2205 dual-phase steel are the same as
that of 316L.
If the carbonization knife is used, the cutting speed is reduced by
about 20% compared with 316L. The performance of the machine and
its components plays a key role here.
5. Welding: the weldability of 2205 alloy is very good.
The performance of 2205 dual phase steel is that the welded metal
and thermal deterioration parts still retain the same corrosion
resistance, strength and toughness as the base metal.
It is not difficult to weld 2205 two-phase steel, but the welding
procedure should be designed to maintain a good phase balance after
welding, so as to avoid the precipitation of harmful metal phase or
