Ferro-Titanit®: highly wear-resistant, light, machinable, hardenable

Ferro-Titanit® is the brand name of Deutsche Edelstahlwerke for ultrahigh-alloy, machinable and hardenable steels produced by powder metallurgy. The materials combine the properties of steel and cemented carbide and are highly resistant to wear.

Ferro-Titanit® has a titanium carbide content of roughly 45% by volume, embedded in an alloyed steel binder phase. This carbide-alloyed material can be machined by the familiar methods in as-delivered condition. When heat-treated (up to 69 HRC), Ferro-Titanit® can be used economically to solve numerous wear problems.
