Chromium Substitution in Stainless Steels.
NTIS: PB/81-235475 :80 pages
A series of vacuum-melted austenitic stainless steels were investigated that contained zero to 18 percent cr and additions of mo, V, cu, si, al, mn, or n. The corrosion resistance was evaluated in a number of environments. The results indicate that it is feasible to develop a stainless steel containing approximately 9 percent cr along with additions of mo and possibly cu and V that would have corrosion resistance comparable to 18 percent cr steels in less severe environments. The mechanical properties, fabricability, and weldability of such an alloy would be acceptable.
