The corrosion behavior of several series of stainless steels is discussed. Photographs of typical attack in both experimental panels and operational equipment are shown. Because of the susceptibility of stainless steel to pitting, its use in sea water should be avoided in new designs. The 300 series, however, may be used if provided with cathodic protection. The 400 series stainless steels are unsuitable for use in sea water even if provided with cathodic protection. Author
