The effect of different C and Cr/Mo contents, which were varied within the range allowed in the relevant specification, on the mechanical and corrosion properties of A487 alloy cast steel were examined. The increase in strength level with increasing C content and the decrease in strength along with the increase in tensile elongation with decreasing Cr/Mo contents were observed in A487 alloys with different C and Cr/Mo contents. At room temperature, the decrease in Cr/Mo content was beneficial in improving the impact properties of A487 alloy, with no notable difference in absorbed energy with varying C content. The impact properties of A487 alloy at −60oC, on the other hand, greatly improved with the increase in C and the decrease in Cr/Mo contents. The corrosion behavior of A487 alloys in 3.5% NaCl solution did not show any meaningful change with different C and Cr/Mo contents.
