Cast stainless steels are usually specified on the basis of composition by using the alloy designation system established by the Alloy Casting Institute. This article discusses the corrosion behavior of heat-resistant alloys due to oxidation, sulfidation, and carburization. It describes the influence of the metallurgy of corrosion-resistant stainless steels on general corrosion, intergranular corrosion, localized corrosion, corrosion fatigue, and stress corrosion.
