The flanges have excellent strength and ductility. They are hardened through heat treatment. The alloy is lowly alloyed. It is resistant to precipitation due to exposure to chloride-bearing environments. The alloy can also withstand pitting, crevice, and stress cracking corrosion. The material is moldable into different sizes, shapes, and designs depending on customer specifications. The grade has excellent weldability and formability. The flanges are available in various types like ring type joint, SWORF, spectacle, threaded, orifice, long weld neck, plate, flat, reducing, expander, BLRF, blind, spade, raised face, and square. They are classified into 150#, 300#, 600#, 900#, 1500#, 2500#, PN6, PN10, PN16, PN25, PN40, and PN64.
