In addition to describing the applications and limitations of stainless steels
for welded construction, the book also addresses common failures in welded stainless steels
associated with fabrication and service exposure, and how such failures may be avoided.
And while many dealers of other metal commodities say they see possible retrenchment in the short term, most marker observers see nothing but continued strength for nickel and stainless steel.
The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF), based in Brussels, Belgium, has released a forecast that reflects the improving landscape.
During a project on the development of sensors for the powder metallurgy industry, NIST has developed a technique for production of nitrogenated stainless steel
alloys with enhanced corrosion and mechanical properties.
Both methods would be cheaper than adding expensive metals such as molybdenum or titanium, as makers of the highest-grade stainless steels now do.
In certain environments, pit corrosion can pierce several millimeters of stainless steel in just a few weeks.
Pools and natatoriums have incorporated stainless steel components for more than 40 years.
Note that the same conditions which create an environment aggressive to stainless steel also increase the risk of deterioration of other materials commonly used in natatoriums, including painted galvanized steel, brass, aluminum, nylon, masonry and timber.
Thyroplast 2316 FM AISI 420 F modified, prehardened, Ca-treated (34/38 Rc), free-machining, corrosion-resistant stainless steel
for mold frames, holders, and bolsters.
Improvement of Bulk and Surface Properties of Stainless Steels
Adding to the challenge, he said that while magnetic separation can be used to sort the 300- and 400-series stainless scrap, such technology is not available in the case of the non-magnetic 200- and 300-series stainless steels.
Simultaneous to the increase in mined nickel output, some industry watchers are forecasting a decline in stainless steel production during the second half of this year, which could result in nickel moving into a surplus, further depressing prices.
J&L Specialty Steel is a manufacturer of flat-rolled stainless steel
Austenitic stainless steels
contain nickel as well as a higher chromium level.
is one of North America's largest industrial distributors of specialty metals, such as carbon, alloy, and stainless steel
, aluminum, nickel alloys, titanium, copper and brass.
