AMSE SA268 S44400 TP444 Ferritic Stainless Steel seamless Tube/Tubing/Pipe
TP444 is a low carbon, dual stabilised, molybdenum containing ferritic stainless steel with good ductility, toughness and resistance to sensitisation, even in the welds. With 18% chromium and 2% molybdenum, the steel has good pitting resistance and crevice corrosion resistance, similar to TP316 and good general corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance, similar to 316 in most environments. Being a ferritic stainless steel, TP444 is not susceptible to Stress Corrosion Cracking. Annealed TP444 is ductile and can be formed using a wide range of roll forming or mild stretch bending operations as well as the more common drawing and bending operations. TP444 does not harden excessively during cold working.
The steel has limited weldability and should not be used in the as-welded condition for dynamic or impact loaded structures. As with most ferritic stainless steels, TP444 can undergo grain growth in the heat affected zone of weldments, which may adversely affect the mechanical properties in these zones. Applications involving welded TP444 are thus generally limited to a thickness of 2.5mm.
TP444 has good pitting resistance and is thus suitable for roofing and cladding in marine environments, as well as hot water tanks and geysers, heat exchanger tubing and food processing equipment.
Ferritic stainless steel features high corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance due to its high chromium content, but its mechanical properties and machinability are poor. It is widely applied to acid-resistant structures with little stress and is used as anti-oxidation steel. This steel type can resist the corrosion of atmospheric, nitric acid and saline solution. It features high temperature oxidation resistance and small thermal expansion coefficient. It can be used in nitric acid and food factory equipment, and can also be used to produce parts working at high temperature, such as gas turbine parts.
