Development of strong inter-particle necks requires successful removal of surface oxides, present on the powder particles, during the initial stages of sintering. In the case of water-atomised powder prealloyed with chromium, the surface oxide consists mainly of an iron oxide layer with some more stable fine particulate oxides. The formation of sufficiently strong inter-particle necks requires as a minimum full removal of the iron surface oxide layer. This can be achieved by gaseous reducing agents (e.g. H2, CO or a mixture of both) or by carbon, typically admixed in the form of graphite. The reducing power of various sintering atmospheres (active gas content #10 vol.-%) and their combined effect with graphite has been investigated by a thermal analysis technique. Results indicate that a combination of a dry hydrogen containing atmosphere and fine graphite allows successful sintering of chromium alloyed PM steels.
