Carbon Is Considered A Harmful Element In Stainless Steel
- Jul 13, 2018 -

In austenitic stainless steel, carbon is often seen as the harmful elements, this is mainly due to the corrosion of stainless steel used in some conditions, such as welding or heating by 450 ~ 850 ℃), carbon steel with chromium in forming high chromium Cr23C6 type carbon compounds which can lead to local chromium depletion, make steel corrosion resistance especially resistant to intergranular corrosion performance degradation. So. Since the 60 s of the development of new cr-ni austenitic stainless steel is mostly carbon content less than 0.03% or 0.02% of the ultra-low carbon type, you can know as the carbon content is reduced, the steel intergranular corrosion sensitivity is reduced, when carbon content less than 0.02% is one of the most obvious effect, some experiments also pointed out that the carbon will also increase the chromium austenitic stainless steel corrosion tendency. Due to the harmful effect of carbon, not only in austenitic stainless steel smelting process should be controlled according to the requirement as far as possible low carbon content, and later in the hot, cold and heat treatment process is to prevent the stainless steel surface carburization, avoid chromium carbide precipitation.
