Abstract

The object of the study was the evaluation of the effect of production parameters on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Cr and Cr-Mo PM steels. The steels were processed from commercial Höganäs pre-alloyed powders: Astaloy CrA, Astaloy CrL and Astaloy CrM with carbon, added in the form of grade C-UF graphite powder in amounts of 0.4 and 0.8 wt. %. Following Turbula mixing for 30 minutes, green compacts were single pressed at 660 MPa according to PN-EN ISO 2740 standard. Sintering was carried out in a laboratory horizontal furnace at 1120°C and 1250°C for 60 minutes in a 5%-95% hydrogen-nitrogen atmosphere. After sintering, the samples were tempered at 200°C for 60 minutes in air. Mechanical tests indicate that the steel based on Astaloy CrA pre-alloyed powder could be an alternative material to steels based on Astaloy CrM. Steels sintered at the higher temperature revealed better mechanical properties.
