Iron Alloys

Iron Alloys

 

metallic systems that contain iron as a component (usually the predominant component). Iron alloys usually contain impurities (manganese, sib’con, sulfur, phosphorus) as well as the alloying ingredients.

The most important iron alloys and the most frequently used in technology are iron-carbon alloys (steel, cast iron). Iron alloys also comprise special alloys based on iron (magnetic alloys, heat-resistant alloys, those with a high electrical resistance), and ferroalloys. Iron alloys account for about 95 percent of the total output of metals.
