The Case for Chromium
- 9 Downloads
Chromium, as an alloy base for high-temperature construction service, is discussed. The expectations for the metal and its technological limitations are approached from an historical point-of-view, and recent developments in chromium technology are discussed. In addition to the physical and strength properties of the metal, processing techniques, availability, and cost are discussed. The future prospects for this metal in high-temperature service are reviewed.
