Due to recent nickel price volatility, ferritic stainless steels, having no or very low nickel content, can be very interesting to stainless steels users. Ferritic represents only about 26% of the total stainless steel production nowadays. The paper presents the ferritic stainless steel family: mechanical properties of the grade including drawability as well as corrosion resistance properties. Experimental data of the newly developed 20% Cr ferritic grade are discussed and compared to the properties of existing 200 and 300 series grades. High temperature properties of ferritic stainless steels designed for exhaust systems are also presented.
