Chromosiliciding of steels
The depth of the diffusion layer resulting from chromosiliciding increase with the concentration of silicon in the mixture and the layer becomes more porous with increasing concentrations of silicon.
Denser layers are obtained in the case of saturation with powdered alloys of silicon and chromium containing 3–3.5% Si. Chromium silicide (Cr5Si3) is formed in the diffusion layer as the result of saturation with chromium and silicon in a high frequency furnace and also as the result of saturation of chromated samples with silicon.
