Sandvik 3R60™ is an austenitic chromium-nickel steel with minimum 2.5% molybdenum and a low carbon content.



Very good impact strength both at room temperature and at cryogenic temperatures due to its austenitic microstructure.


Good corrosion resistance

  • Organic acids at high concentrations and moderate temperatures
  • Inorganic acids, e.g. phosphoric and sulfuric acids (moderate concentrations and temperature). The steel can also be used in sulfuric acid of concentrations above 90% at low temperature.
  • Salt solutions, e.g. sulfates, sulfides and sulfites
  • Caustic environments

Good weldability– due to its low thermal conductivity and high thermal expansion, welding with a low heat input is recommended.
