Alloy steel is a type of steel that intentionally combines carbon with other elements including manganese, nickel, and chromium to achieve improved mechanical qualities. It is possible to enhance a variety of qualities, including toughness, corrosion resistance, and strength. Low alloy steel and high alloy steel are two general categories for alloy steels.
Its functionality will also be impacted by the alloying element content.
- Manganese: helps remove extra oxygen from molten steel and increases surface hardness and resistance to strain, hammering, and shock. It also mixes with sulfur and phosphorus to lessen brittleness.
- Nickel: improves toughness, corrosion resistance, and strength.
- Chromium: increases toughness, wear resistance, and hardness.
Cobalt: enhances hot hardness for uses like cutting tools.
- Molybdenum: improves strength and heat- and shock-resistance.
- Tungsten: enhances grain structure, provides hardness, and increases heat resistance.
- Vanadium: improves toughness, strength, and corrosion- and shock-resistance.
- Silicon: enhances magnetic characteristics and boosts strength.
- Boron is a potent agent for hardenability.
