Portuguese version of duplex brochure published


IMOA is pleased to announce that its ‘Practical Guidelines for the Fabrication of Duplex Stainless Steels’ brochure is now available in Portuguese, in addition to the existing seven languages.

Duplex stainless steels combine good corrosion resistance with high strength and ease of fabrication. There are many similarities in the fabrication of duplex stainless steels with other stainless steels but the high alloy content and strength of duplex grades mean that there are also some important differences. The brochure covers these points and is a comprehensive source of practical information for the successful fabrication of duplex stainless steels.

Dr Nicole Kinsman, Technical Director, IMOA, commented: “The duplex brochure is one of the most popular publications on the IMOA website, with some 150,000 copies downloaded since the second edition was published just over four years ago. There is considerable interest in duplex stainless steel in the oil and gas industry in Brazil, so we decided to make it available in Portuguese in addition to English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese. I would like to thank ABINOX, the Brazilian Stainless Steel Development Association, and Villares Metals for their assistance with translating and proofing the brochure.”

The brochure can be found on the IMOA website at www.imoa.info/media_centre/downloads

General information for media

IMOA is a non profit trade association, representing the majority of the molybdenum industry worldwide. It works to raise awareness about the unique properties of molybdenum, its beneficial effects on materials performance, its safety in use and its contribution to sustainable development.

Molybdenum is added to alloy steels to improve strength, toughness, hardenability and weldability for numerous applications in the automotive, shipbuilding, construction, mining, chemical, oil & gas and energy generation industries. In stainless steels and superalloys, it improves corrosion resistance and high-temperature performance and finds uses in many industrial applications. It is also used in a variety of products from catalysts and lubricants to pigments and paint.

IMOA has a strict antitrust compliance policy which delegates of all meetings are required to observe. All such meetings are observed by legal counsel.
