Kinetics of the solution of second phases in steel Kh18N12T

  • 15 Accesses


  1. 1.

    (Ti, Ni)6C, formed in steel Kh18N12T during operation at high temperatures, is less stable during subsequent heating than σ phase. Its solution temperature is 50–100° lower than that of σ phase.

  2. 2.

    The solution of σ phase and (Ti, Ni)6C during heating changes the properties of steel Kh18N12T.
