Galvanised Martensitic Strip
Vanadium's ability to resist temper softening, or provide secondary hardening, is being further exploited. As we move to higher strength steels, in construction, transport etc., there is a steady shift to low temperatue transofmation products. The recent development of vanadium microalloyed HDG high strength martensitic strip steels is an example of this trend. Understand how vanadium uses old tricks to solve new problems.
