Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0844312A1] The ferritic stainless steel of the present invention contain the following main chemical elements, in which a relationship between B and Gd, preferably, satisfies the following equation (1) on the weight % basis: <TABLE> The austenitic stainless steel of the present invention contain the following main chemical elements, in which a relationship between B and Gd, preferably, satisfies the following equation (1) on the weight % basis: <TABLE> The stainless steel of the present invention described above are excellent in thermal neutron absorption ability, as well as are excellent in the workability such as hot workability and cold workability, and the corrosion resistance, particularly, the corrosion resistance for HAZ and are inexpensive for the manufacturing cost. Further, since the toughness, the weldability and the like are also satisfactory, they are extremely suitable to materials for use in nuclear fuel casks or the like: <MATH> in which <MATH>
