Ferrochrome or Ferrochromium
Cr, Chrome is added to iron and steel castings to improve wear and corrosion resistance.
Chromium is the primary additive in stainless steel, to which it adds anti-corrosive properties. Ferrochromium alloy is commercially produced from chromite by silicothermic or aluminothermic reactions and chromium metal by roasting and leaching processes followed by reduction with carbon and then aluminum. Chromium metal is of high value for its high corrosion resistance and hardness. A significant development in steel production was discovering that steel could be made highly resistant to corrosion and discoloration by adding metallic chromium to form stainless steel. Stainless steel and chrome plating (electroplating with chromium) comprise 85% of commercial use.
