Highly efficient wear resistant steels alloyed with silicon

Wear- and Corrosion-Resistant Steels

A concept for creating sparingly alloyed wear-resistant steels by solid-solution and grain-boundary hardening is developed and implemented. The efficiency of combined hardening of steel with silicon and carbides, borocarbides, and carbonitrides is demonstrated.
