Stainless steel is a great material due to its resistance to corrosion and its durability. While welding stainless steel can be challenging, it is possible to learn with the right knowledge and practice.
Let's explore the facts about welding stainless steel!
Stainless steels are iron base alloys which contain at least 10.5% chromium. Chromium oxide forms on the surface of a stainless steel. This thin but dense film makes stainless steels resistant to corrosion and prevents further oxidation.
Types Of Stainless Steels
Most stainless steels are considered to have good weldability!
They may be welded by several welding processes such as arc welding,
resistance welding, electron and laser beam welding, friction welding and brazing.
Remember: it’s important to keep joint surfaces and any filler metal clean!
