BS6744 - Specification
BS6744: 2001 +A2: 2009 has been revised to include the new Lean
Duplex grades of stainless steel materials developed over the
past 15 years or so.
These new grades when compared to the traditional Austenitic
grades offer advantages when developed into bars in reinforcement
or construction and use in cement with a lower Nickel and Molybdenham
content, this new family of stainless steels enable the
product to be produced with the following advantages:
corrosion resistance in areas of higher chloride concentration.
Higher strength to meet with the 500 & 650 grades detailed
in BS6744: 2001.
More stable price, relevant to larger long-term contracts.
The new specifications 1.4632/1.4162 have been included in BS6744:
