Welding of Low Nickel Chrome-manganese Austenitic and ferritic Stainless Steel is an emerging area of research. Due to nickel price volatility, there was been increased interest in no-nickel or low-nickel economical grades of stainless steel. Chrome -manganese austenitic (“standard 200-series”) and ferritic stainless steel (“standard 300-series”) grades with well-defined technical properties have proved acceptable materials for specific applications for many years. This increase in the use and production of these low nickel grades is not currently matched by a proper level of user knowledge. So there is a risk that they may be used in unsuitable applications. It is very important to cultivate the method of fabrication like welding. This paper looks at the behavior of low nickel chrome-manganese and Ferritic austenitic stainless steel in terms of microstructure and sensitization effects.
