Application 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. 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.
