The aim of the project is to prolong the life-time of p/m ledeburitic steel tools by upgrading the tool material and applying various surfacing techniques.
Design of new methods of the production of very pure steel based on 26nicrmov145. New forming and thermomechanical treatment technologies for this material will be also developed. The assumption is to produce devices for power plants from the new developed material.
Selection of micro-alloying additions combined with optimal forming and heat treatment conditions will be used to enhance end-use properties of steel products: forgings, sheets, strips and tubes.
The aim is to design and develop precast fire resistant concrete elements using industrial waste materials.
