Stainless Steels; Past, Present and Future
Stainless steel (SS) alloys are being used in different industrial applications due to their excellent corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. Over the years, there is a consistent growth in SS production to fulfil the growing industrial demands and with an increase of 10.6% than the previous year, it has reached up to 56.3 million tons in 2021. This webinar will discuss the historical development of stainless-steel alloys, ongoing research on lean stainless steels and future prospects both in term of alloy development and applications.
