    1. Rationale

    We wish to add two duplex stainless grades (FDX-25 and FDX-27). These alloys are patented in Finland and applications for patents in several other countries are being sought. UNS numbers will be obtained once these grades pass sub-committee ballots. A user request letter and data from three different heats will accompany the submission of the work item.
