AbstractThe processing and properties of chromium–molybdenum, powder metallurgy steels with admixed extra-fine nickel (XF Ni) were investigated. Prealloyed Fe–1·5Cr–0·2Mo powder was blended with different quantities of XF Ni, while a hybrid steel with lower Cr content was prepared by blending Fe–1·5Cr–0·2Mo and Fe–0·5Mo prealloyed powders, with additions of XF Ni and copper powders. These steels were compacted into different part shapes in order to evaluate the effect of part thickness on sinterhardening behaviour. These parts were also subjected to different cooling rates after sintering. This study showed that additions of XF Ni improve the compressibility, densification behaviour and mechanical properties of Cr–Mo steels. Furthermore, the properties of the hybrid steel were shown to be either equal to or greater than those of the reference material. Hardenability of all steels was sufficiently high such that part thickness was seen to have negligible impact. Higher cooling rates generally resulted in improved mechanical properties.
