The structure of V-Gin1 structure is dispersed and dotted Ledeburite within primary carbides, within the body material (matrix) to be seen as uniformly fine secondary carbides. The structure provides satisfactory grinding performance, unlike stainless steel which is difficulty to machine process grind.
V-Gin1 has a far superior corrosion and heat resistance than carbon steel due to the addition of 5% of Chromium and 1% of Mo into analysis. The additional Chromium and Molybdenum helps the steel achieve the optimum hardness in either oil quenching or air cooling.
The addition of 1%M (Molybdenum) to the analysis improves high temperature strength and resistance to softening, and V(Vanadium) further refines the matrix.
Gin2 and V-Gin3B have improved corrosion resistance with the large quantity addition of Cr.
Clad with soft stainless steel with V-Gin1, Gin2, or V-Gin3B core, it is widely used and known as "stainless Chromax”
