2205 Duplex Stainless Steel Wire Mesh – Alloy Overview

2205 duplex stainless steel wire mesh is the most extensively used duplex stainless steel alloy in the industrial wire cloth world. As a duplex stainless steel alloy, 2205 duplex exhibits double the yield strength of most standard austenitic stainless steel alloys (i.e. T-316L). Additionally, 2205 duplex stainless steel wire cloth has superior corrosion resistance properties vs. T-316L wire cloth as a result of its higher chromium, nitrogen, and molybdenum content. If the superior corrosion resistance and strength of 2205 duplex is not required, T-316L is often substituted due to its lower cost. Some characteristics of 2205 duplex stainless steel wire cloth which dictate its use are:

  • Duplex stainless steel (both ferritic and austenitic).
  • Less frequently used stainless steel alloy in the industrial wire cloth world (T-304 & T-316 being the most common).
  • Magnetic in all conditions.
  • Withstands outdoor exposure without rusting.
  • Good fatigue strength & excellent corrosion resistance in severe industrial and chemical settings.
  • Best used in temperatures below 570°F (undergoes embrittlement at higher temperatures).
  • Easily welded, more difficult to cut and form than T-316L (thus, higher cutting forces are required).

Industries & Applications
