Are you interested in learning about alloy types, their classifications and microstructures?

Please join us for a live seminar led by our industry-leading technical experts as we discuss the aspects of alloy types, including their classification and microstructure. We will cover the grades and types of steels (including stainless steel and tool steels), as well as aluminum and magnesium alloys. Topics will  include phases and phase diagrams, constituents, and examples of typical microstructures.
