Medium Manganese Steels: Part One

Medium manganese steels should be considered in the same circles of many of the technologically focused and well known materials in the automotive industry such as AHSS, DP, CP as well as second generation steels.
Medium-Mn steels show a strong tendency for transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) or twinning induced plasticity (TWIP) depending on the stability of the retained austenite. Continue reading

Manganese Bronze Alloys

Bronze alloys exhibit very good toughness, strength, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity.
As one of the oldest alloyed materials a range of applications exist to take advantage of the various positive characteristics such as high load bearings, bushings and hydraulic cylinder parts. Continue reading
