UNS S31254 is a high-end austenitic stainless steel, also referred to as stainless steel grade 254 or alloy 254 SMO. It has high levels of chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen, making it significantly stronger than other austenitic grades and providing many other benefits for a range of applications and industries.

Some of the standard applications that benefit from UNS S31254 include the following:

  • Chokes
  • Heat exchangers
  • Industrial components for the chemical industry, food processing, and oil and gas
  • Pipework
  • Saltwater handling

If your applications require outstanding strength and strong resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, UNS S31254 is the ideal solution. Additional benefits include an enhanced level of ductility, good weldability and resistance to chemical and saltwater corrosion, especially in high chloride environments.

Masteel offers a wide range of steel products that can be used in many applications around the world. One of the key advantages of UNS S31254 is the molybdenum enhances its resistance to corrosion, making it the perfect material for saltwater applications. It is also beneficial in fossil fuel power stations, and the nuclear and oil and gas industries because of its ductility and impact strength.
