How is chrome steel made?

What processes and materials are used in the production of chrome steel


Go to the process section and find point 6 (explains when alloys are added). Chrome is added at this point, usually in the form of ferrochrome alloy (FeCr). Many kinds of chrome steel also contain nickel. The strengthening effect on steel by forming stable carbide grains at the grain boundaries and the strong increase in corrosion resistance made chromium an important alloying material for steel. The high speed tool steels contain between 3 and 5% chromium.

well, save up some more $$. I wouldnt feel safe on a $120 mountain bike. My advice would be to invest in something that's a little more money. Also, why do you want a steel frame? Aluminum frames today are made from 7005 alloy, and stack up very well compared to the durability of steel. Plus, they wiegh alot less. Nowadays, youll only find steel on a cheap walmart bike, ir a top notch downhill bike made for extream offf road conditions.
