Duplex stainless steels have a microstructure of nearly equal portions of austenite and ferrite. This microstructure ensures that they are much more resistant to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) than conventional austenitic stainless steels.
LDX 2101 is normally sufficient in urban and industrial environments.
