  • FORGING:forming temperature: 1100-850oC.
  • SOFT ANNEALING: Heat to 730-760oC, cool slowly. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 207.
  • STRESS RELIEVING: Stress relieving to remove machining stresses should be carried out by heating to approx. 600-650oC, holding for 1-2 hours at heat, followed by air cooling. This operation is performed to reduce distortion during heat treatment.
  • HARDENING: Harden from a temperature of 780-810oC, 820-850oC followed by water or oil quenching. Hardness after quenching is about 60 HRC.
  • TEMPERING: Tempering temperature: 150-180 oC.

Mill′s test certificate:
