Abstract: Although duplex stainless steels (SS) exhibit good performance in many severe corrosive environments, their corrosion resistance can be hampered by precipitation of chromium (Cr)- and molybdenum (Mo)-rich phases during heat treatments. The influence of aging treatments on intergranular corrosion (IGC) of a commercial 25% Cr-5% nickel (Ni) duplex SS (UNS S32550) was studied. The SS was given aging treatments in the range 773 K to 1,173 K for durations from 6 min to 100 h. Microstructure study of the aged samples indicated the presence of various phases, among them sigma, Cr-rich carbide, secondary austenite, alpha and copper (Cu)-rich precipitate. The influence of these precipitated phases on IGC susceptibility of the 55 was evaluated by the ferric sulfate (Fe[SO4](3))-sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and Cu-copper sulfate-(CuSO4)-H2SO4 tests. Results indicated sigma- and Cr-rich carbide increased IGC susceptibility greatly, as did aging in the range 873 K to 1,073 K.
