Due to its extremely good pitting and crevice corrosion properties, Sanicro® 35 is particularly suitable for applications in seawater and other high chloride concentration conditions.

Sanicro® 35 also has a high resistance to general corrosion in acid environments, making it suitable for a variety of applications.

The excellent mechanical and corrosion properties make Sanicro®35 an economical choice in many applications, by reducing the life cycle cost of equipment.

Sanicro®35 bars are semi-finished products with defined properties that can be machined to various components (such as flanges, valves, fittings, couplings, rings and seals, shafts, bolts and nuts) in applications highlighted below:

  • Oil&Gas drilling tools
  • Waste heat recovery exchangers
  • Evaporators
  • Off-shore piping systems

Corrosion resistance

General corrosion

Sanicro®35 has Excellent corrosion resistance, for service in sea-water applications and other highly corrosive environments.
Service temperatures up to 450°C.

The general corrosion resistance of Sanicro®35 in acids and alkalines is better than that of Alloy 825 / Sanicro®825, SAF®2507 and Sanicro®28.

Sanicro®35 is a suitable alternative to Alloy 625 / Sanicro®625, in presence of ammonia and hydrochloric acid. If that material type is considered for service.

Pitting and crevice corrosion

The localized corrosion resistance of Sanicro®35 in chloride containing environment is superior to that of Alloy 825 / Sanicro®825, SAF®2507 and Sanicro®28. And on par or better compared to Alloy 625 / Sanicro®625.

One of the main advantages of Sanicro® 35 is that it has excellent resistance
to pitting corrosion.

In natural seawater conditions at 30°C, the pitting corrosion resistance is excellent, and the crevice corrosion resistance is better than for Alloy 625 / Sanicro®625.

In chlorinated seawater Sanicro®35 is resistant to crevice corrosion at 45°C,
and resistant to pitting corrosion at 80°C

The Pitting Resistance Equivalent Value with Nitrogen included, PREN: >52

Stress corrosion cracking

Sanicro®35 has excellent stress corrosion cracking resistance (chlorides, H2S) and does not suffer from SCC in a NACE MR 0175 / ISO 15156 Test Level VI environment.

The resistance to hydrogen embrittlement is also excellent.

Sour service

The Sanicro®35 resistance to cracking in the presence of H2S and chlorides is very high.

Refinery sour water service – static and flowing conditions.
Sanicro®35 performs very well, at least on par with Alloy 625 / Sanicro®625 and SAF®2507.

Offshore sour service

Compared to Alloy 625 / Sanicro®625, Sanicro®35 has overall better corrosion resistance in marine environments.

And compared Alloy 825 / Sanicro®825, Sanicro®35 has superior corrosion resistance in chloride environments.



Materials in this group of alloys (UNS N08935) are challenging to machine.

This is due to a number of properties, leading to high cutting forces,

severe wear and poor chip control.
Dedicated cutting tools and strategies to be used.
