Abstract: Mechanical properties, microstructure and fracture of Fe-3Cr-0.5Mo-xMn steels sintered laboratory at 1250°C and industrially at 1180°C, and of Fe-3Cr-0.3Mo-0.3V-xMn steels laboratory sintered at 1200°C are presented; all steels with 0.24% C. The highest tensile strength of 806 and 856 MPa attained the steels with 2% Mn based on Fe-3Cr-0.5Mo powder and of 929 MPa the Fe-3Cr-0.3Mo-0.3V-1.5Mn-0.24C steels. Linear increase of hardness and relatively linear decrease of impact energy in dependence on Mn addition was recorded. Tested steels exhibited lower heterogeneity of the microstructures. The fracture of steel containing vanadium with 2% Mn showed more metallic inclusions adversely affecting the strength properties.

Abstract: The effect of three iron powder grades and three manganese carrier types on mechanical and tribological characteristics of sintered 1 -5% Mn steels was investigated. The different effect of iron powder grades in dependence on manganese addition expressed oneself in strength and in wear. The highest strength and highest wear attained the steels with 3% Mn added as high carbon ferromanganese. The components – rollers - prepared from manganese steel exhibited lower wear than that from Fe-4Ni-1.5Cu-0.5Mo powder. The gears for hydrogenerator prepared from Fe-3.5Mn-0.5Mo-0.3C steel exhibited longer life time at increased oil pressure compared with that from through hardened sintered Fe-4Ni-1C steel.
