Effects of Manganese in steel alloys
Manganese is second only to carbon in the importance of the effects it imparts to steel alloys.

  • (+) Increases hardness.
  • (+) Increases strength.
  • (+) Increases wear resistance.
  • (+) Increases toughness.
  • (+) Increases shock resistance.
  • (+) Helps as a deoxidizing agent.(cleaner, purifier)
  • (+) Prevents distortion during heat treatment.
