Core

Die Core-Kategorie umfasst austenitische und ferritische Edelstahlgüten für leicht bis durchschnittlich korrosive Umgebungen im PRE-Bereich 17–22. 

Die am weitesten verbreitete austenitische Edelstahlsorte, Core 304L/4307 (EN 1.4307), bestimmt das Gesamtbild der Core-Kategorie. Die Core-Kategorie wird durch moderne stabilisierte nickelfreie ferritische Edelstähle mit einem Chromgehalt von 18–21 %, wie Core 441/4509 (EN 1.4509), und austenitische Alternativen mit niedrigem Nickelgehalt ergänzt.

Die neueste Ergänzung der Core-Kategorie ist der stabilisierte ferritische Edelstahl mit einem Chromgehalt von 21 %, Core 4622 (EN 1.4622). Der nickelfreie Core 4622 bietet im Vergleich zum 304L eine ähnliche Korrosionsbeständigkeit, Schweißbarkeit bei besserer Wärmeübertragung, Bearbeitbarkeit und Tiefziehbarkeit.

Austenitische Cr-Ni-Edelstähle der Core-Kategorie haben gute Korrosionsbeständigkeit, Schweiß- und Umformeigenschaften, insbesondere Streckzieheigenschaften. Austenitische Stähle weisen eine sehr hohe Verformbarkeit auf, und zwar bis hinunter zu kryogenen Temperaturen. Aufgrund der höheren Zähigkeit und Kaltverfestigung der austenitischen Edelstähle ist bei der Umformung und Bearbeitung im Vergleich zu ferritischen Edelstählen oder Kohlenstoffstählen besondere Vorsicht geboten. 

Moderne stabilisierte ferritische Edelstähle der Core-Kategorie haben gute Korrosionsbeständigkeit, Schweiß- und Tiefzieheigenschaften. Dank der Phasenstruktur weisen nickelfreie ferritische Edelstähle eine hervorragende Beständigkeit gegen chloridinduzierte Spannungsrisskorrosion auf. Ferritische Edelstähle haben gute Wärmeübertragungseigenschaften, die in Anwendungen genutzt werden können, in denen eine gleichmäßige und schnelle Wärmeübertragung bevorzugt wird. Eine gute Wärmeübertragung mit geringerer Wärmeausdehnung erleichtert die Schweißbarkeit durch einen geringeren Schweißverzug und ein geringeres Ausbeulverhalten als austenitische Edelstähle. Außerdem sind ferritische Stähle aufgrund ihrer geringen Kaltverfestigung ähnlich gut bearbeitbar wie Kohlenstoffstähle.

Die Güten der Core-Kategorie können in einer Vielzahl von Anwendungen eingesetzt werden, die durch eine breite Auswahl an Oberflächenausführungen von Walzwerken und Servicecentern unterstützt werden.
