AOD, Argon Oxygen Decarburization, is a process for making stainless steel and other high grade alloys by allowing precise gas manipulation. Since stainless steels need to be further refined, oxygen, gradually replaced by argon, is blown through the molten steel to eliminate impurities.
This refining process produces steel with low carbon properties (.01% or lower) and low silicon levels, which, in turn, creates a metal that has better weldability (can reduce weld electrode use by over 50%), and is more corrosion resistant, malleable, and heat resistant.
