|It used as a de-oxidizer in steel making whose de-oxidizing comes between Mn & Ti. In alloying it improves high temperature oxidation resistance and is therefore intentionally added to heat resisting Cr-Mo and Cr-Mo-V steels. It is also present in high temperature valve and spring steels for automotive engine applications. Both ferritic and austenitic stainless steels will contain about 1% silicon for oxidation resistance.
