HTW 2023


Working together with global Stainless Steel Materials’ experts, engineers and companies involved in the manufacture or use of stainless steels/CRAs, we provide here a selection of original, non-commercial articles. These in-depth technical papers are written or co-written by operating companies, describing commercially viable new technologies and case histories of successful applications, backed by data. Topics include tubes & pipes, cladding, offshore, chemical process industry, welding & fabrication, 13Cr stainless steels, titanium, nickel alloys, pulp & paper and duplex stainless steels.
If you wish to include your technical articles in our magazine, email newsletter or on our website please feel free to contact Joanne McIntyre.
