Outokumpu : publishes a new edition of the Corrosion Handbook

11/10/2009 | 02:35am US/Eastern



PRESS RELEASE
November 10, 2009 at 9.30 EET


Today, a new edition of the Outokumpu Corrosion Handbook for the
stainless steel market is published. The handbook, published for the
first time in 1934, is an important tool for corrosion engineers,
metallurgists, designers and other specialists when looking for
solutions for corrosion problems and selecting the correct stainless
steel grade for a certain application.

The handbook addresses corrosion with extensive articles and
technical descriptions covering different industrial sectors. The
content is based on the thorough and long-term research and
development carried out in Outokumpu's research centres.

The need for the updated handbook derives from the rapid growth of
low-nickel stainless steel and the rich variety of new products and
applications. In this 10th edition, a special focus is on industries
with demanding applications such as desalination, pulp and paper and
oil and gas industry. New topics discussed are stainless steels in
food processing, catering and household appliances, stainless steels
in soil, in road environments and in swimming pool buildings, as well
as stainless steels as concrete reinforcement.

Each year, corrosion damages cause significant financial losses for
companies and societies throughout the world. Stainless steel is
corrosion resistant, strong, hygienic and fully recyclable. These
properties make it an ideal choice for a variety of industrial and
consumer applications. Several life-cycle studies indicate that in
many applications, the total cost of stainless steel is lower than
that of competing materials, since stainless steel hardly needs any
maintenance.
