Duplex Stainless Steels

Duplex stainless steels have a combination of two phases, ferrite, and austenite in approximately equal measure. This allows them to benefit from the advantages of both austenitic and ferritic stainless steel, leading to increased strength, improved weldability, higher toughness, and resistance to several types of corrosion. Commercially, they are also cheaper than austenitic stainless steels due to their lower nickel […]

What is pitting corrosion and how does it happen?

Pitting corrosion is in itself a corrosion mechanism, but is also a form of corrosion often associated with other types of corrosion mechanisms.
