> Weld Stainless Steel Without Compromising Corrosion Resistance
When metalformers weld stainless steel, the discoloration that can occur not only looks bad, but also can indicate a loss of corrosion resistance by the weldment. Understand why this phenomenon can occur during arc welding, and the steps that welders can take to avoid it, in this very informative article on the website of Stainless Steel Industry.
