Proceedings of Taiwan High Performance Steel Symposium Now Available


The full proceedings of the first Symposium on “Fundamentals and Applications of Mo and Nb Alloying in High Performance Steels” are now available in print and online. The symposium, jointly organized by IMOA, CBMM, NiobelCon, China Steel Corporation (CSC) and National Taiwan University (NTU), was held in Taipei, Taiwan in November 2011.

The proceedings contain 15 papers from internationally renowned experts focused on the metallurgical fundamentals and product applications of high performance steels alloyed with Mo and Nb.

Attended by more than 80 delegates, the symposium was judged to be of great value by its participants and organisers. Leading research experts from academia and industry exchanged ideas on innovations in steel development and their impacts on energy conservation, CO2 emissions and other sustainability challenges facing today’s steel-related industries. 

Of particular interest were the synergies achieved by alloying with Mo and Nb, creating a more profound effect on steel properties. The enhanced strength and toughness observed saves weight and improves safety and performance in a number of end uses including linepipe, automotive and structural applications. Alloying can also be cost-effective when processing and quality considerations are evaluated.

The full proceedings can be downloaded from the TMS website at www.tms.org/highperformancesteels or the book can be ordered from IMOA directly at info@imoa.info.

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.
