1 hr

disagree  Brigith Guimarães: Symbol for chromium is "Cr", not Ch.
2 hrs

disagree  Ramon Somoza: Estoy de acuerdo con Brigith, el símbolo del cormo es Cr. De todas formas, es muy raro, yo he trabajado durante años con normativa de materiales, y no recuerdo ningún metal así...
3 hrs

disagree  sileugenia: El símbolo del Cromo es Cr. Es más, no existe en la tabla periódica de los elementos ningún metal cuyo símbolo sea Ch. Probablemente se trate de un error de tipeo.

acero cementado

In Diccionario politécnico de las lenguas española e inglesa, Beigbederi Atienza, segunda edición, Díaz de Santos, 1998, dice:

CH steel = acero cementado

Note it does not say only "CH"

It includes the word "steel"

Plus, CH are capitalized.

Since you stated it is a metal, I thought I would throw it out as a possibility, por si las moscas.
