Increase of the Mechanical Properties of Low Alloyed Steels through Complementary Alloying


Article Preview

The mechanical properties of sintered steels are mainly dependent on the material microstructure determined by the matrix composition. The paper presents the mechanical properties of some sintered steels obtained from mixtures of Distaloy AB, Astaloy Mo and graphite powders. The aim of this paper is to investigate the performances increasing of the materials obtained by sintering some mixed compositions of Distaloy AB and Astaloy Mo steel powders with graphite additions.
