On-demand webinar: Why is analyzing carbon important?

Did you know that there are over 3,500 different grades of steel? In fact, steel is one of the world’s most innovative and essential materials. Carbon is a key element in steel and is added at small levels from 0.005% to 2%. The addition of carbon into stainless steels helps increase properties such as corrosion resistance, weldability, ductility, hardness and much more. The slightest adjustment of carbon can have consequences as simple as economic loss, or as crucial as loss of life – putting the reputation of your business on the line. Watch this educational webinar to see how carbon analysis is changing.
