Ferrinox 255LT™ Stainless Steel Bar

Excellent resistance to corrosion in acids.


Smiths Advanced Metals stocks Ferrinox 255TM LT stainless steel bars in a solution treated condition.

Ferrinox 255 LT™ is Smiths own designated stainless steel bar product.


Ferrinox 255 LT™ (UNS S32550) is a stainless steel containing 25.5% chromium, 6% nickel with significant molybdenum, copper and nitrogen additions, and a PREN (pitting resistance equivalent) of=40.0. The copper content of 1.6% is particularly beneficial in promoting optimum resistance to corrosion in acidic environments. The chemical composition and mechanical properties conform to the requirements of UNS S32550, 1.4507 and several oil and gas industry specifications. The microstructure is controlled with a phase balance close to 50:50 austenite and ferrite with complete freedom from grain boundary carbides, sigma phase and other deleterious precipitates.


Own Designation

The alloy is Smiths own designation and is classed as a super duplex (austenitic/ferritic) stainless steel. The material offers a viable alternative when compared to 300 series stainless steels due to the attractive performance characteristics of the alloy. The material finds use in the production of valves, pumps, shafts, control gears and wellhead equipment.
