COSMIC, ALLOY 22
ABRASION RESISTANT STAINLESS STEEL
Cosmic, Alloy 22 has enhanced properties over standard stainless steel, such as: Good Corrosion Resistance, Increased Strength, and Excellent Abrasion Resistance. Alloy 22 is a Duplex grade (austenitic / ferritic) of stainless steel.
Standard grades of stainless steel offers almost no protection against abrasion and erosion. The design criteria used in selecting stainless steel has normally been based upon its inherent properties of corrosion resistance and good slide ability based upon a low coefficient of friction in the polished condition.
