NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-3 section A.5.1 and Table D.5, concerning ferritic stainless steels, refer to “some alloys of this type” Given that Table D.5 is stated to not be all-inclusive, can I rightfully construe that any stainless alloy that meets the definition of “ferritic stainless steel” under definition 3.6 can be used under the conditions of Table A.17?
Yes, any stainless steel that meets the definition of “ferritic stainless steels” under 3.6 can be used under conditions of Table A.17.
This question is in relation to NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-3 A.5.1
