IRON-ALUMINIUM INTERMETALSMethods for minimizing cavitation and cavitation erosionare limited. One of them is the use of engineering plasticswith the possible greatest resistance to cavitation damage.Fe-Al based alloys may be characterized by such featuresas: low density, good resistance to oxidation and corrosionat higher temperatures and sea water environment, as wellas high strength, low cost of raw materials and theiravailability and high resistance to cavitation damage.These properties result in high competition of intermetals ofthe system Fe-Al among Fe-Cr, Fe-Cr-Ni and nickel alloysand ceramic matrix allowing for their use as:• replacement of stainless steels and nickel based alloys• materials employed in liquid corrosive and hightemperature corrosion conditions• the use of alloys of Fe-Al system for protective coatings
