With a microstructure of approximately 50% ferrite and 50% austenite, duplex stainless steels benefit from many attractive properties. For example, enhanced corrosion resistance, especially to stress corrosion and pitting. The microstructure results in higher strength than standard austenitic stainless steels such as type 304 or 316. Duplex stainless steels have become increasingly common in many applications in recent years.
