Abstract [en]

In the present work the 475 °C embrittlement in binary Fe-Cr and ternary Fe-Cr-X (X=Ni, Cu and Mn) alloys have been investigated. The mechanical properties were evaluated using microhardness and impact testing, and the structural evolution was evaluated using atom probe tomography (APT). The APT results after aging at 500 °C for 10. h clearly showed that both Ni and Mn accelerate the ferrite decomposition. No evident phase separation of either the Fe-20Cr or Fe-20Cr-1.5Cu samples was detected after 10. h of aging and thus no conclusions on the effect of Cu can be drawn. Cu clustering was however found in the Fe-20Cr-1.5Cu sample after 10. h aging at 500 °C. The mechanical property evolution was consistent with the structural evolution found from APT. Samples aged at 450 and 500 °C all showed increasing hardness and decreasing impact energy. The embrittlement was observed to take place mainly during the first 10. h of aging and it could primarily be attributed to phase separation, but also substitutional solute clustering and possibly carbon and nitrogen segregation may contribute in a negative way. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
