Abstract :

The hot deformability of super-duplex stainless steels is closely related to the deformation temperature, which induces structural transformations that sometimes result in fragile phases. UNS S 32760 is a corrosion resistant austenitic-ferritic super-duplex steel, used for applications where conventional duplex grades do not meet the corrosion requirements. The material is characterized by very good resistance in chloride containing media and by high mechanical strength and good ductility. However, hot formability may be adversely affected due to the formation of intermetallic phases, promoted by Cr and Mo in which ferrite is enriched, and due to the fall of element solubility in the ferrite with decreasing temperature, which increases the probability of precipitation during hot forming. Thus, to avoid cracking, it is essential to carefully control the temperature during plastic deformation. In the present paper, microstructural modifications occurring by varying the forging temperature of a super-duplex stainless steel UNS S 32760 are analyzed by SEM-EBSD technique. It is studied the appearance and evolution of different phases in the temperature range 800 - 1200├?┬?├?┬?├?┬?├?┬░C, for a constant degree of deformation. Particular attention is given to the sigma and chi fragile phases. The observations resulted from the microstructural analysis allowed conclusions to be drawn on the optimal deformation temperature range for the super-duplex steel studied.
