    1. Rationale

    Outokumpu VDM USA, Inc. makes a specialty ferritic stainless steel for use in solid oxide fuel cells. This is a nominal 22Cr-2W-Fe alloy that also contains small additions of Si, Ti, Nb, and La. We have been asked by one of our customers to have this material included into ASTM specifications to make procurement easier for them.
