Main Features
  • Highest strength among 18Cr-8Ni austenitic stainless steels utilizing Cu-rich phase.
  • Fine-grained microstructure by Thermo-Mechanical Process, which contribute to superior steam oxidation resistance to conventional coarse grainded TP347H.
  • Superior weldability to TP347H due to smaller amount of niobium, PWHT is not mandatory and matching welding consumable is available.
  • Good phase stability proven by long term creep-rupture tests and actual operation results in USC boilers.
  • Global shipments of more than 70 thousand tons, mainly for USC boilers.

  • Vd TÜV Material data sheet 550 Supplement 12.2010
  • UNS No. S30432
  • ASTM A213/A213M
