CORROSION BEHAVIOR OF SHIP-STEEL PLATES ROLLED FROM CONTINUOUS-CAST SLABS

The continuous casting of steel slabs followed by rolling to plate has become an important source for steels used in marine service. Because of the potential corrosiveness of marine environments toward steel, it is important to know how steel plates produced from continuous-cast slabs compare in corrosion resistance with plates produced from ingots. A 15-month corrosion test described here refutes earlier reports that continuous casting yields plates that corrode more rapidly than plates rolled from ingots.
