Q

Contains at least 12% chromium, and is popular for its ability to resist corrosion. Five main classes: Ferritic, martensitic, austenitic, precipitation, hardening, duplex grade

A

Stainless steel

Q

When stainless steel is heated to about 800 to 1600°F, the chromium and carbon in the metals tend to combine and form chromium carbides. This reduces the chromium content required for the steel and results in less corrosion resistance. 

A

Sensitization (carbide precipitation)
