1.4507 – 2507Cu – S32520/S32550
Available from stock !
Superduplex stainless steels have a very high resistance to localized corrosion in chloride media, combined with a high mechanical strength. UR™ 2507Cu (1.4507), with addition of copper, is specially designed for enhanced resistance in sulfuric acid media.
The corrosion resistance of these grades is better than UR™ 904 and comparable to 6 Mo austenitics.
This Superduplex grade has a pitting resistance equivalent number, PREN, above 40, and a minimum guaranteed yield strength of 550 MPa, allowing for leaner design in load bearing applications.
The alloy composition, including molybdenum and nitrogen additions, has been optimized to obtain a 50/50 austenoferritic microstructure with outstanding corrosion resistance even for heavy plates.
The UR™ 2507Cu Superduplex grade provides cost - efficient alternatives for a wide range of applications, including offshore, phosphoric and sulfuric acid production as well as flue gas cleaning.

The UR™ 2507Cu grade performs particularly well in highly corrosive conditions, including sulphuric and phosphoric acid solutions, even in presence of chlorides. The duplex microstructure which provides high mechanical strength explains why the alloy behaves particularly well in abrasion - corrosion conditions (agitators, screws, rakes...). Superduplex grades are frequently used in mixed acids containing chlorides.
Thanks to its copper content, UR™ 2507Cu performs very well in sulfate environments, for example flue gas cleaning.
The minimum PREN value of 40 also explains why the alloys are highly resistant to pitting corrosion and crevice corrosion.
The alloy behave much better than 904L and is, for pitting corrosion resistance, nearly equivalent to 6 Mo super austenitic grades. In some cases, the crevice corrosion resistance is slightly higher than 6 Mo alloys due to the 25% Cr additions.
The stress corrosion resistance properties of superduplex stainless steels are excellent in high temperature chloride containing solutions as well as in sour gas applications.
