What Is Argon Oxygen Decarburization (AOD)?

Argon Oxygen Decarburization (AOD) is a refining process for ferrous metals such as stainless steel that improves alloy performance through tight chemistry control and high levels of metal purity. The AOD refining process produces steel with low carbon (0.025% or less) and low silicon and sulfur levels. This results in improved properties such as: Weldability (reducing weld electrode use by over 50%)
