Stainless steel rust

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Speaking of rust and stainless steel, I was in a poo-poo pump station to observe fiberglass gratings and handrails stiffness and stuff.  I was also looking around and noticed that the stainless steel plates that were bent to form pipe brackets/supports were showing rust wherever the bends were.  The non-bent portions were OK.  I surmised that this was due to the heat used to bend the pieces changing some molecules around.  Has anyone observed this phenomenon elsewhere?
