Chromium Conservation in Stainless Steel
A critical review of published literature, and personal contacts with industries and individuals, were made to determine the possibilities for chromium conservation in stainless steels. The information obtained indicates that no low- or non-chromium substitute will be universally satisfactory. However, substitutes are possible in many specific applications, although the substitute probably will differ for each application. Examples are given.
