A new book titled ‘Manganese in Powder Metallurgy Steels’ by A. Salak and M. Selecká, is now available from Cambridge International Science Publishing.


The 380 page book, published in association with Spinger, presents a complex historical and technical view of the preparation and properties of sintered manganese steels. It includes data on the mechanical properties of sintered manganese steels published since 1948 up to the present time.

The publisher states that the book is highly suitable for researchers and for PM parts and powder producers.


  • Thermodynamics of Mn-O system
  • Manganese high vapour pressure – effect of gaseous manganese on sintering and alloying (basic data, physical effects, reaction Mn(g) – O, condensation, alloying)
  • Manganese carrier (electrolytic manganese, ferromanganese, master alloys, carbides, Mn prealloyed powders)
  • Properties of Fe-Mn-(C), Fe-Mn-(xMn)- (C) steels (Mn and C content, compaction pressure, additional elements, sintering conditions)
  • Sintering conditions (common, short time, induction, in phase)
  • Properties of hybrid Cr, Mo-Mn steels (Mn and C content, sintering conditions)
  • Dilatometer tests of the sintering process (Mn an C content, iron powder grade, prealloyed powders, processing conditions)
  • Tribological properties
  • Industrial sintering
  • Heat treatment (transformation of manganese austenite, cooling rate, effect of Mn and C content, sinter hardening)
  • Effect of the atmosphere purity (dew point -30 C, -70 C)
