EN 1.7225---4140 is a high alloy austenitic stainless steel. The
grade is intended for use under severe corrosive conditions. The
steel grade was originally developed to resist corrosion in dilute
sulphuric acid. EN 1.7225 is fully austenitic, and is less
sensitive to precipitation of ferrite and sigma phase than
conventional austenitic grades with high molybdenum content. Due to
the combination of relatively high contents of chromium, nickel,
molybdenum and copper, EN 1.7225 has good resistance to general
corrosion, particulary in dilute sulphuric acid. It is non-magnetic
in the annealed condition but may become slightly magnetic as a
result of cold-working or welding.
⇒ Good resistance to uniform corrosion
⇒ Good resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion
⇒ Very good resistance to stress corrosion cracking
⇒ Good resistance to intercrystalline corrosion
⇒ Good formability and weldability
Uniform corrosion Uniform corrosion is characterized by a uniform
corrosion of the steel surface in contact with the corrosive
medium. Resistance is normally considered good if the corrosion
rate is less than 0.1 mm/year. As a result of its high chromium,
nickel and molybdenum contents and its alloying with copper, EN
1.7225 is passivated even in reducing environments such as dilute
sulphuric acid and formic acid. Its high nickel content contributes
towards its relatively low corrosion rate in the active state.
EN 1.7225 has a very low carbon content. This means that there is
very little risk of carbide precipitation in connection with
ordinary heat treatment and welding. The risk of intercrystalline
corrosion after ordinary heat treatment and welding is thereby
