High Performance Stainless Steels (11021)
By Curtis W. Kovach The high-performance stainless steels are a family of stainless steels which have distinctly superior corrosion resistance in a wide variety of aggressive environments and are more technically demanding than Types 304 and 316 with regard to metallurgy and fabrication requirements. This is due to the nature of the steels themselves and the demanding applications in which they are used. A thorough understanding of these stainless steels is necessary to use them successfully. This book provides assistance in making the optimum material selection for a given application, and provides guidance in the fabrication and use of the selected grade.
