This Presentation will review the histories of Fe-Cr-C alloys in high chromium wear resistant castings (AS2027) and CrC wear plate (AS2576). Service lives of wear resistant materials depend on their properties of wear resistance, corrosion resistance and fracture toughness.
These are system properties rather than material properties and relate to the microstructures of the Fe-Cr-C alloys and, the operating conditions in service. Alloy developments in high chromium white cast irons over the past 30 years can be applied to improve the service performance of current CrC wear plate.
