Fabricating austenitic

An on-line slide presentation (with accompanying audio) has been launched by the Nickel Institute. It highlights the good practices that should be followed to maintain the corrosion resistance and aesthetic qualities of austenitic stainless steels. Topics covered include: how to avoid surface contamination and damage; how to cut and form stainless steels; how to clean surfaces before welding; how the welding of stainless steels compares with the welding of carbon and low-alloy steels; how to clean up after welding (by removing heat tint, pickling and electropolishing); how embedded iron affects stainless steels; and how to bring a stainless steel structure into service. The presentation contains 64 slides, but it is designed to allow the user to proceed at their own pace. They can also move to any slide in the presentation via a table of contents. Several animated examples and interactive features are included to enhance learning and heighten user interest. The intended audience is materials specifiers, fabricators and users of stainless steel. Visit: www.nickelinstitute.org/good_practices
