Nickel-based super alloy: Alloy 31 (UNS N08031)

What is alloy 31?

Alloy 31 ( UNS N08031) nickel base alloy is a kind of iron nickel chromium molybdenum alloy containing nitrogen. Its properties are between super austenitic stainless steel and existing nickel base alloy. Alloy 31 (n08031) nickel base alloy is suitable for chemical and petrochemical industry, environmental engineering, oil and gas production and other industrial fields.

Designated as UNS N08031 or DIN W.Nr. 1.4562, Alloy 31 is an iron-nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy with nitrogen and copper additions which has hybridized properties of austenitic super stainless steels and regular nickel alloys. Alloy 31 has exceptional corrosion resistance to alkaline & halide-containing media, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, chlorine dioxide media, nitric acid as well as reducing & oxidizing medias. It is widely used in offshore & marine industries, chemical & petrochemical processing, pharmaceutical piping, oil and gas extraction, and ore digestion plants. Especially, alloy 31 can be used for the fabrication of pressure vessels which may endure a wide temperature-range from cryogenic level to elevated temperatures(-196°C to 550 °C).
