Abstract : Steels of the type 10KP, 20, 30, and 35L were chromium plated from the sublimated phase in a vacuum in a period of one to 15 hours. The 70% industrial ferrochrome Cr.00 was used in the spray. Through vacuum diffusion chromium plating, a diffused layer to a depth of 2 mm can be obtained on carbon steel for much higher operational characteristics than with 1KH13 steel, thus permitting carbon steel to be used instead of KH17N2 and KH18N9T steels.
