Introduction

SPECIALTY STEELS encompass a broad range of ferrous alloys noted for their special processing characteristics (powder metallurgy alloys), corrosion resistance (stainless steels), wear resistance and toughness (tool steels), high strength (maraging steels), or magnetic properties (electrical steels). Each of these material groups--with the exception of stainless steels, which were discussed in the previous article in this Section--will be reviewed below. Additional information on these materials can be found in Volumes 1 and 2 of the ASM Handbook.
