The binder phase of Ferro-Titanit U is roughly equivalent to the austenitic CrNiMo steel X 10 CrNiMoNb 18 10 (Mat. No. 1.4580). The material is non-magnetisable and, because of its high Cr and Mo contents, possesses excellent resistance to pitting corrosion in media containing chlorine ions. Its high titanium carbide content of 34% by weight, or 45% by volume, provides it with outstanding wear resistance. The Cr and Ni contents simultaneously give the material good scaling resistance and high-temperature strength.
The material requires no later postheat treatment.
