Esterer Gießerei - Carbide


Generally, carbides are metal-carbon compounds with the chemical formula MxCy. The most renowned is cementite Fe3C, also known as iron carbide.

Carbide can develop during the solidification of all alloys of iron and carbon, which depends on the cooling speed or chemical composition of the material. Pockets of carbide have a high influence on the mechanic characteristics of a material: they impair the toughness and treatment capability of the material.
