High Carbon Ferro Chrome

High Carbon Ferro Chrome

High Carbon Ferro Chrome

Ferro Chrome is an alloy of chromium & iron containing 50 – 70% chromium by weight. Addition of chromium improves the strength and yield point of steel and reduces elongation insignificantly. The presence of Chromium in carbon steels improves their hardness and wear resistance. Ferro Chrome is made from a mixture of Chromite Ore & Iron in an electric arc furnace. High Carbon Ferro Chrome is majorly produced in China, Russia and India.
