Stainless Steel Metallurgy

The National Composites Centre (NCC) is delighted to work in collaboration with the AMRC to deliver this course.

This course is being run at The National Composites Centre by AMRC - BOOK HERE

Course aims
To provide professionals with a working knowledge of the production, processing and applications of a wide range of stainless steels grades. Emphasis is placed on technical considerations and their impact on processing and in-service performance.

Who should attend
Professionals involved in the manufacture, supply and use of stainless steels products. The course is delivered at a moderate technical level and assumes only very basic prior knowledge of steel metallurgy.

Course Duration: 1 day

Price: £400

• Appreciate the fundamental principles of stainless steel metallurgy
• Understand how stainless steel is made and processed
• Learn how corrosion is controlled and prevented
• How stainless steel grades are specified and matched with a range of applications
