Alloy 2535 Nickel Pipe

UNS N08535

COMMON TRADE NAMES: CRA 2535E, SM2535®, 25%Cr-35%Ni, 25 CR35 Ni

2535 Applicable EnvironmentsAlloy 2535 (UNS N08535) is a cold hardened nickel-based alloy intended for corrosion resistance in highly sour (H2S) environments with moderate chloride content, requiring high strength up to 350°F. 2535 offers increased resistance to the effects of H2S relative to stainless steels allowing its use as downhole tubular components, packers, and other subsurface equipment in sour wells with high-pressure and high-temperature (HPHT) conditions and Acid Gas Injection (AGI) wells. However, all environmental factors, including H2S, CO2 , temperature, pH, and chloride concentration, should be considered before final material selection.

UNS N08535 is classified in MR0175/ISO15156 as a type 4c alloy, with no restrictions to a partial pressure of H2S below 270°F and resistant to 200 psi H2S at 350°F.

CRA 2535E

CRA 2535E (UNS N08535) is a premium, electro-slag re-melted version of alloy 2535. The performance and consistency are enhanced through tightly controlled compositional limits and microstructural cleanliness.
