Dr. Metals has lengthy experience in dealing with corrosion and related metallurgical topics for multiple industry segments. Penn Stainless customers benefit greatly from Dr. Hira’s considerable breadth of knowledge, particularly in areas such as material selection, corrosion analysis, testing requirements and more.



Penn Stainless has a strategic alliance with Lehigh University Materials Science and Engineering Department.  The alliance is designed to provide Penn Stainless customers with access to the department’s expertise, especially in relation to corrosion and welding technical issues, as well as to provide Lehigh University students with the chance to learn more about manufacturing and the challenges associated with it.  An added advantage of this relationship, is the access it provides to cross functional departments, including Structural Engineering which can be helpful when determining wall thickness requirements.  Lehigh University’s research experience in metallurgy and metal working has also proved very helpful
