About Lab.

Special steels laboratory (SSL) deals with alloy design, processing technology, and characterization of corrosion resistant stainless steels, heat resistant high temperature steels, die steels, and various kinds of specialty steels. As the global concerns on the reduction of energy consumption, efficient usage of energy, and new findings and drilling of oil resources are growing, the demands for the specialty steels are rapidly rising. The biggest problem of specialty steels is that they usually contain very expensive elements. Thus, there are plenty of rooms for developing specialty steels with high performance with low price, and students can realize their own dream in SSL of GIFT.
