Structure of Stainless Steels

Stainless steel is not a specific material, but a common term for a group of corrosion-resistant steel types. Stainless steels are steels which normally have a chromium content of at least 10.5%.

Types and properties of stainless steels

Welding of stainless steel requires knowledge about the material as well as welding methods and products to maintain the material’s stainless properties.

Stainless steels in Cryogenic Applications

The most important material property is good toughness at low temperatures.
