Detailed Product Description
A soft and ductile element, vanadium naturally occurs in about 65 different minerals and is used mainly to produce certain alloys. It is one of the 26 elements found in most living organisms. Vanadium is a chemical element that has the symbol V and atomic number 23.
The largest practical application of Ferro Vanadium is in the alloying process of any hardened steel. That steel is then, in turn, used in gears, axles, and other highly critical steel components. Ferro Vanadium forms stable carbides and nitrides that results in a significant increase in strength. High-carbon steel alloys (HSS) with a vanadium content range of 1%-5% is used for high-speed tool steels as well as in surgical tools and instruments. Ferro Vanadium also stabilises the beta form of titanium, which in turn increases the temperature stability of titanium. Mixed with aluminium in titanium alloys, Ferro Vanadium is also used in high-speed airframes and jet engines.
