SuperExpanite surface hardening replaces hard chrome plating

LIAG®LÄUFER, the specialist in hygienic shutter valves, had experienced challenges with abrasive wear and corrosion resistance. They tried different surface hardening solutions, which all caused corrosion after short time in use - then they found Expanite...

Marcel A.J. Somers awarded

Sigma Phase in Duplex? - Never with Expanite!

Duplex stainless steels contain 2 types of microstructure, austenite and ferrite. Hence the name duplex. 
In simple terms, the combination of these two phases is what causes duplex alloys to be highly sensitive with respect to the formation of the so-called “Sigma phase” (s-phase), because the s-phase primarily will form in the boundary between austenite and ferrite, growing into the ferrite.
