254 SMO || 1.4547 || F44
High-alloy austenitic stainless steel for use in seawater
254 SMO is a high-alloy austenitic type of stainless steel, generally known for its ideal use in the shipping sector in contact with seawater as well as in saline and sulphurous environments. It was developed for use in seawater and other aggressive chloride-containing media, up to food industry applications, and belongs to the super-austenite group. The increased molybdenum content and the addition of nitrogen provide excellent resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion.
