Modification of γ-(Fe, Cr)3C pseudo-binary eutectic
- 47 Downloads
The γ-(Fe, Cr)3C pseudo-binary eutectic alloy with K, Ce, Sb additives was unidirectionally solidified in a Brigdman-type unit. The quasi-regular, lamellar eutectic carbide was changed into rods and bent blades by the modifiers under well-controlled conditions. At very slow growth, partial modification was common. At growth rates corresponding to a slightly cellular interface, a fully modified structure could be obtained. The modification behaviour as a function of the modifying element, its concentration and the growth rate is described and discussed.
