The History of Stainless Steel

Author:
This book provides a fascinating glimpse into a vital material that we may take for granted today. Stainless steel, called “the miracle metal” and “the crowning achievement of metallurgy” by the prominent metallurgist Carl Zapffe, is a material marvel with an equally fascinating history of people, places, and technology.

As stainless steel nears the 100th anniversary of its discovery, this book is a fitting perspective on a vital material of our modern life, and it is the first book that captures the unfolding excitement and innovations of stainless steel pioneers and entrepreneurs. Amply illustrated with photographs, the book also includes a timeline that lists more than 450 important facts and events related to stainless steels technology and applications.
