Joining Stainless Steel by Soldering, Brazing and Resistance Welding
Stainless steel is a general term covering
a group of materials which have different
corrosion and heat resistant properties
dependent upon their composition and
heat treatment. Most users appreciate this
difference but there are still instances where
drawings will merely state ‘stainless steel’.
All stainless steels can be classified into
groups and this article relates specifically
to those which are collectively known as
martensitic and austenitic steels.
