1. Classification of Stainless Steel
August 02, 2013
Various types of stainless steel are identified by their microstructure or predominant crystal phase. These are generally grouped into martensitic, austenitic, ferritic, duplex and precipitation handling. Chromium, nickel, and molybdenum are most commonly used as alloying elements affecting the features of steel.
Stainless steel is generally segregated into five types – ferritic, austenitic, martensitic, duplex and precipitation handling.
Ferritic steel is made up of iron and chromium, based on the Type 430 composition of 17% chromium, having a similar microstructure to carbon and l... (read more)
