This article provides information on the base material properties of wrought duplex stainless steels (DSS). These properties include microstructure, alloy grades, mechanical and physical properties, and corrosion resistance. The article reviews the applications and microstructural development of DSS. It describes the factors influencing welding and weldability of the DSS. These factors include preheating, postweld heat treatment, interpass temperature control, welding practices, welding procedure qualification, filler metal requirements, cracking behavior, and loss of properties. The article examines the applicable welding processes such as fusion welding and solid-state welding processes.
