EN 1.4507 (X2CrNiMoCuN25-6-3) Stainless Steel

EN 1.4507 stainless steel is a duplex stainless steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the solution annealed (AT) condition. 1.4507 is the EN numeric designation for this material. X2CrNiMoCuN25-6-3 is the EN chemical designation.

It has a moderately high base cost among wrought duplex stainless steels. In addition, it has a moderately high embodied energy and a moderately high tensile strength.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare EN 1.4507 stainless steel to: wrought duplex stainless steels (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.

Alloy Composition

Among wrought stainless steels, the composition of EN 1.4507 stainless steel is notable for containing a comparatively high amount of chromium (Cr) and including copper (Cu). Chromium is the defining alloying element of stainless steel. Higher chromium content imparts additional corrosion resistance. Copper is used to improve resistance to acids, and to improve formability.

Iron (Fe) 56.4 to 65.8
Chromium (Cr) 24 to 26
Nickel (Ni) 6.0 to 8.0
Molybdenum (Mo) 3.0 to 4.0
Copper (Cu) 1.0 to 2.5
Manganese (Mn) 0 to 2.0
Silicon (Si) 0 to 0.7
Nitrogen (N) 0.2 to 0.3
Phosphorus (P) 0 to 0.035
Carbon (C) 0 to 0.030
Sulfur (S) 0 to 0.015
