Several recent applications of stainless steel including explosive containers, fuel rod control elements, auto exhaust manifolds and keyless entry systems are described. Each part/component is discussed and the advantages that resulted from switching to a stainless steel alloy are considered. Reported benefits include increased strength, weigh reduction, extended durability and corrosion resistance. Alloys being utilized in new applications include Armco’s Nitronic 50 and 305, 309 and 310 stainless.
