Weld-associated corrosion of stainless steels will be reviewed with examples from oxidizing and reducing environments from the pulp and paper industry. Examples of carbon steel weld corrosion will also be detailed from sea water and from caustic exposure. Pitting, stress corrosion, filler metal composition and post-weld cleaning issues are among the critical factors covered. The range of test methods available to identify the best ways to avoid the corrosion issues will be detailed.
