Intermetallic Phases in New Steels
Al containing intermetallic phases have been evaluated in various bcc and fcc steels. Attractive application options have been derived for hot working tools steels with respect to a reduction of resource critical alloying elements and in cold formable steels by the combined density reduction and strength increase.
