Superaustenitic stainless steel has the same structure as the common austenitic alloys, but they have enhanced levels of elements such as chromium, nickel, molybdenum, copper, and nitrogen, which give them superior strength and corrosion resistance.

Superaustenitic stainless steel alloys are characterized by their high nickel and molybdenum contents plus nitrogen. The most common of the alloys are 904L, AL-6XN, 254 SMO, 25-6MO and 1925 hMO.Superaustenitic metal designed to resistcrevice corrosion, pitting, chloride-induced corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking. It can also withstand alkaline and salt solutions, protecting against metallic contami- nation of product and preventing rapid degradation of the fluid transfer system.

These superaustenitic stainless steel alloys have a face-centered cubic crystal structure similar to other austenitic stainless steel and are non-magnetic and their magnetic permeability remains low even after severe cold forming. The nitrogen addition provides the alloy with improved resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, a greater resistance to localized corrosion in oxidizing chlorides and reducing solutions plus higher strength. Nitrogen also helps to significantly reduce the potential formation of harmful secondary phases during welding.
