Combatting the challenges of fabricating high-strength steels

Combatting the challenges of fabricating high-strength steels
By Theo Simon, Technical Specialist at diversified technology company, 3M In the oil and gas sector, welded fabrications must resist very harsh operating environments where they may be subjected to high temperatures, pressures and corrosion. Therefore stainless steels such as 6 Moly and Duplex which have a high corrosion resistance – particularly to stress corrosion cracking - are becoming more common across the industry. However, these high performance materials can prove more difficult to work with, especially in terms of grinding.
