FUNDAMENTALS OF STEEL MICROALLIGATION
The micro-alligation of steels has become a usual practice during the last decades for the positive results which
can be reached in terms of yield strength, toughness and plastic formability also through a modulation of the
properties which can be obtained only by the choice of a correct cooling rate and the control of the final forming
temperature of the steels. The micro-alligation can grant significant advantages in terms of the mechanical
properties and in terms of economic savings related to avoiding the alligation of expensive chemical elements
and the elimination of long heat treatment.
