Hydrogen Embrittlement In Metal Finishing

Hydrogen Embrittlement In Metal Finishing

Hydrogen embrittlement is when metals such as steel, become brittle and fractures. This happens when hydrogen is introduced into the metal substrate and subsequently diffused during the forming and finishing processes. Hydrogen embrittlement can seriously diminish a...
