Heat Resistance

The strength of a material at higher temperatures is represented by its heat resistance. It is often important that steel does not lose its good mechanical properties even at high temperatures. Therefore it is necessary to know the high-temperature strength of the steel.

To increase the high-temperature strength of iron, alloying elements such as cobalt, molybdenum and vanadium are used.
