Structure formation during the sintering of powder steels alloyed with copper, chromium, and phosphorous

  • S. M. Romanov
Theory And Technology Of Sintering Processes, Thermal And Thermochemical Treatment


The process of structure formation during the sintering of powder steels alloyed with copper, chromium, and phosphorous was investigated. The microstructure of the materials, and distribution of alloying elements in the iron grains, were studied by the methods of electron and scanning electron microscopy. The effect of dispersion of the ferrochromium powder on its solubility in iron was examined.
