Chromium was first isolated as a metal in 1798, but it was not until 1818 that it was put to regular use in pigments for the manufacturing of wallpaper. With the development of the world steel industry during the 20th century, chromium has assumed a considerable importance as an alloying element. Chromium usage may be divided into three broad, widely diverse areas of application:
Refractory and Foundry Sand (3.5%)
The metal’s greatest benefit to the metallurgical industry lies in its ability to impart such properties as corrosion resistance, hardness, strength and bright attractive furnish. For this reason, metallurgical grade ores are used for the production of ferrochrome used by the steel making industry in the production of corrosion and heat resistant steel and stainless steel. Chromium has no substitute in stainless steel, the leading end use, or in super alloys, the major strategic end use. Chromium-bearing scrap can substitute for ferrochrome in other metallurgical applications.
