Low Alloy Chromium-Manganese Steels

Keywords: High Temperature Stainless Steel

Chromium and manganese are two of the most potent additions to steel for improving hardenability. These elements have traditionally been avoided in standard PM alloys due to the increased difficulty in reducing their oxides compared to molybdenum, nickel, and copper. The availability of dry hydrogen and nitrogen atmospheres and high temperature sintering, coupled with the need for reducing alloying costs, makes these newer chromium-manganese alloys ideal for many high performance applications. The alloys provide a good balance of strength, toughness, ductility, and machinability.
