  1. 1.

    In high-speed steel alloyed with nitrogen a large proportion of the nitrogen is bound in vanadium carbonitride. The size of the carbonitride particles increases with the nitrogen content of the steel.

  2. 2.

    Alloying of steel R6M5 with nitrogen has a positive influence on the properties — the secondary hardness and red hardness increase and also the plasticity during hot deformation.
