1.4529 is mainly in following applications:

  • Concentration and crystallization plants for salt production by evaporation
  • Condenser pipes and pipeline systems in power plants with highly polluted cooling water
  • Pump rods for oil delivery systems
  • Evaporators, heat exchangers, tank linings etc. and phosphoric acid production
  • Tanks for transport of aggressive chemical products
  • Distribution systems and coolers for sulfuric acid plants
  • Fire extinguishing systems, seawater filtration, hydraulic and injection systems of offshore technology
  • Flexible pipes in the offshore industry
  • Flue gas desulphurisation plants (FGD)

  • Corrosion properties

    6Mo has excellent general corrosion resistance and improved resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion. The resistance to stress corrosion cracking is also increased. It is often referred as super austenitic stainless steel. Generally it has the following corrosion properties:

  • Increased resistance to stress corrosion cracking compared to other austenitic stainless steels
  • excellent general corrosion resistance in use of ​​oxidizing as well as reducing media
  • less tendency to form intermetallic phases compared to similar steels with only 18% nickel content
  • very good resistance at pitting and crevice corrosion

  • Hot forming

    The material is hot formed within a temperature range of 1200 and 900 ° C and afterwards quenched rapidly in water or air.

    The annealing tALes place at 1200 ° C.

    After hot forming, heat treatment for optimum corrosion resistance is recommended.


    The material Alloy 6XN (UNS N08367) was developed in the USA. This has an almost identical composition and is used in the same applications. However, this material is not listed in the VdTÜV sheet and does not have its own Werkstoffnummer. An use in European pressure applications is therefore difficult.

    The almost identical material is once used in Europe as 1.4529 and in the USA as UNS N08367. At Hempel, we have therefore stocked the material with double certification so that it can be used internationally.
