Ulbrich processing uses low dew point protective atmospheres to minimize detrimental oxide formation which can otherwise lead to excessive die life and tooling changeovers.

One of the greatest benefits of stainless steel is that chromium promotes a very tight and adherent oxide layer which provides corrosion resistance in water and many other acidic/caustic solutions.  Ulbrich processing uses low dew point protective atmospheres to minimize detrimental oxide formation which can otherwise lead to excessive die life and tooling changeovers.  Even with pH grades that have high aluminum contents, this tenacious oxide is a greater problem for tool life, and our unique processing yields a cleaner surface with minimal oxide formation on these difficult to form pH grades.  The Ulbrich technical team can assist to select the proper alloy for your application and will balance corrosion resistance, mechanical properties and form-ability since all of these play a key role in alloy selection.
