NACE MR 0175/ISO 15156 for Corrosion Resistant Alloys for Sulphide Service   Introduction NACE MR 0175/ISO 15156 is a Materials Standard issued by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers. It is originally a US standard intended to assess the suitability of...

Heat Treatments for Austenitic Stainless Steels

Introduction Unlike martensitic steels, the austenitic stainless steels are not hardenable by heat treatment as no phase changes occur on heating or cooling. Softening is done by heating in the 1050/ 1120�C range, ideally followed by rapid cooling. This is of course...

Selecting welding consumables for stainless steels

Matching the consumables to the parent material The composition of stainless steel welding consumables is matched with the base or parent material. The chemical analyses (composition) of the consumables used are usually balanced to optimise the welding process and...
