We are currently performing additional testing and verification of the new material grade LD24, where the following verifications are done with satisfactory results.
Bending 6 mm and 10 mm plates to 90 degrees with 1x wall radius (standard radius is 2 x wall) – using brake press at our partner Smed T. Kristiansen. Smed T. Kristiansen confirmed that this material grade showed similar properties to other Duplex grades – uniform properties and no surface irregularities.
Mechanical and metallurgical tests as per ISO 17781 scope at our independent partners test laboratory, Q-lab. The mechanical and metallurgical tests at Q-lab were also satisfactory, where corrosion test also passed at a far higher temperature than required.
