Lee, The fast answer is no - there is no connection between heat and scratches. The scratches are only caused by abrasion of a harder object against the softer aluminum case. Heat has nothing to
As you pointed out, Brinell hardness does seem to have a direct relationship with strength. I am not aware of a definitive 'conversion chart' as such. The main reason is the strength of steel is determined
I have included this information on different shielding gases and where they are used. It also includes some benefits and drawbacks as well. Exactly which gas should be used in your process would require
I will respond using American designations. I trust this will assist. Common stainless steels such as 304 and 316 including the L versions, have an 18-8 ratio. 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel. The 'L'
