Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of the Stainless Steels Obtained by Sintering Mixtures of AISI 316L and Silicon Powders
The aim of the study was to obtain a ferritic-austenitic stainless steel through sintering of the mixture of austenitic steel AISI 316L powders with silicon in the amount ranging from 1 to 7%. The pressed mixtures were sintered at 1240oC for 60 minutes under hydrogen atmosphere. The results of the silicon admixture on the density, porosity, microstructure and mechanical properties of the sintered specimens are discussed.
