... enough carbon so that when heated they transform to austenite. The hardenability is so high that they form martensite even with slow cooling. Applications include razor and knife blades. Cast Irons Cast irons contain far more carbon than steel. Typical carbon contents range from 2 to 4% C with 1...

Thus, early stainless steel making, done in an arc furnace, was a lengthy process that necessarily involved high chromium losses to the slag as carbon was removed. This process...

Finally, to demonstrate that in fact steel had been produced, quenching from a temperature high enough to produce hardness greater than...

... started to replace bronze in approximately 1200 B.C. Cast iron alloys predate steel because cast iron, with its higher carbon content, melts at lower temperatures. Early steel alloys were produced by solid-state smelting that produced iron with a low carbon content and high density of entrapped slag...
