PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Manganese is much like iron in its physical properties, but softer than iron. If manganese contains a small amount of an impurity, carbon or silicon, it becomes hard and brittle. However, pure manganese metal is not widely used, that is because in the humid air, it is easy to rust, it will not take long to generate a layer of manganese oxide film on the surface and become gray, thus losing luster. However, this does not affect manganese in the modern steel manufacturing industry’s leading important position.

Because steel contains a lot of impurities in the process of refining, it will reduce the performance of steel, manganese as slag agent, deoxidizer, desulfurizer and alloying element, can remove the harmful impurities in the process of steel smelting, improve the operation and processing of steel smelting, improve the quality and performance of steel. Manganese steel, for example, has a very odd and interesting temper: if 2.5% to 3.5% manganese is added to the process of steel making, the resulting low manganese steel will break like glass at a knock. However, if more than 13% of manganese is added, the high manganese steel will become the opposite of the property of low manganese steel, which is both hard and ductile. When high manganese steel is heated to a light orange color, it will become very soft and easy to be processed and modified. On the other hand, it has no magnetism, and magnets cannot attract it. Nowadays, manganese steel is widely used in the manufacture of various mechanical components resistant to wear, such as steel mills, ball bearings, excavators’ buckets, rails, Bridges and so on.
