Corrosion resistance of stainless steel after post-treatment after welding
The objective is to arrive at a ranking of the most suitable cleaning techniques for specific applications.
Importance of this research for metal machining (welding) companies:
- Depending on the application, the best post-treatment can be selected > optimisation of resources.
- Work procedures can be adjusted if fewer hazardous chemicals need to be used after welding > reducing health and safety risks.
Importance of this research for chemical companies:
- Alternative post-treatment techniques can be accepted when specifying the welding work > reducing health and safety risks.
- If cleaning does not represent a significant added value for some less corrosive conditions > avoid the cleaning step.
