Abstract

Chromium has been hardly mentioned in previous chapters, and it has only pointed out its carburigen and antigraphitizing character. It is the moment of considering the influence of chromium in the microstructures derived from the Fe–C–Cr system. That is because chromium is an essential element in some high-alloy cast irons. Fe–C–Cr system is also basic when the physical metallurgy of stainless steels is studied.
