Powder Metallurgy Stainless Steels: Processing, Microstructures, and Properties
Chapter 5: Sintering and Corrosion Resistance
This chapter discusses the sintering process for stainless steel powders and its influence on corrosion resistance. It begins with a review of sintering furnaces and atmospheres and the effect of temperature and density on compact properties such as conductivity, ductility, and strength. It then describes the relationship between sintered density and corrosion resistance and how it varies for different types of powders and operating environments. The chapter also explains how stainless steel powders respond to different sintering atmospheres, including hydrogen, hydrogen-nitrogen, and vacuum, and liquid-phase sintering processes.
