Abstract Pressure metallurgy is a means of increasing the nitrogen content and thereby the resistance of stainless martensitic steels to pitting corrosion. The present study on their constitution and heat treatment reveals that even at normal pressure more nitrogen is dissolved in the melt if the carbon content increases, because the fraction of ferrite is reduced during solidification. Nitrogen is dissolved more readily during austenitisation than carbon which lowers the C/N ratio at hardening… Expand
Nitrogen and Ausforming to Improve Stainless Martensitic Steels
The chromium content of standard martensitic stainless steel X65Cr14 is raised to 17 mass% to enhance the solubility of nitrogen. Up to 4 mass% of nickel are added to suppress a partially ferriticExpand
New Developments in Martensitic Stainless Steels Containing C + N
The use of nitrogen in martensitic stainless steels is limited by its solubility. Nitrogen solubility can be increased by alloying with elements such as Cr, Mn, and Mo and the use of pressure, suchExpand
Corrosion properties of a complex multi‐phase martensitic stainless steel depending on the tempering temperature
In this work, the corrosion resistance of X190CrVMo20-4-1 martensitic stainless steel and the hardness are correlated with the tempering temperature. The steel was hardened from a typicalExpand

Carbon or nitrogen alloyed quenched and tempered stainless steels : a comparative study
Some conventional stainless quenched and tempered steel grades were modified by substituting nitrogen for carbon and by variing the contents of chromium, molybdenum and nickel. Results of aExpand
Intensive Interstitial Strengthening of Stainless Steels
The high chromium content of stainless steel impairs the interstitial solubility of carbon in austenite at solution annealing or hardening temperature. Replacing carbon by nitrogen improves theExpand
Tempering of Martensitic Stainless Steel with 0.6 w/o Nitogen and /or Carbon
