The production of steel is the largest consumer of ferrochrome, especially the production of stainless steel with chromium content of 10 to 20% is the main application of ferrochrome. Stainless steel depends on chrome for its appearance and its corrosion resisting properties. High Carbon Ferro Chrome is most commonly used in specialist applications such as engineering steels. Low Carbon Ferro Chrome is used for trimming additions in stainless steel production as well as other specialist applications. It is added by stainless steel producers in the last stages of production to add precise amounts of chrome without affecting the carbon levels.
