Stainless Steel Metallurgy

Stainless Steel Met

A one day technical course covering all aspects of the production and use of a range of stainless steel alloys.

Course aims

To provide professionals with a working knowledge of the production,processing and applications of a wide range of stainless steels grades. Emphasis is placed on technical considerations and their impact on processing and in-service performance.

Who should attend

Professionals involved in the manufacture, supply and use of stainless steels products. The course is delivered at a moderate technical level and assumes only very basic prior knowledge of steel metallurgy.
