Quench-Kleen 5343 from Houghton International is a low-residue alkaline spray cleaner specifically formulated for heat-treating applications. Valley Forge, PA (PRWEB) May 29, 2012 Quenched metal parts require cleaning before they can move onto other metalworking processes such as annealing or tempering. Quench-Kleen 5343 from Houghton International is a low-residue alkaline spray cleaner specifically formulated for heat-treating applications. It presents no barrier to subsequent coating...

By Soliman, Mohamed Palkowski, Heinz Two Mo-Nb microalloyed transformation-induced-plasticity (TRIP) steels, with Al contents of 0.23 and 0.65, were subjected to several hot-rolling conditions designed to generate different ferrite morphologies and grain sizes. These structures were then cold rolled and TRIP annealed under different heat-treatment conditions. To further develop TRIP steel in terms of strength and ductility, stabilizing retained austenite by isothermal bainitic...

By Timelli, Giulio Lohne, Otto; Arnberg, Lars; Laukli, Hans Ivar The influence of solution heat treatment time and temperature on the microstructure and mechanical properties and the mode of fracture of a high-pressure die-cast AlSi7MgMn alloy is reported. Metallographic and image analysis techniques have been used to quantitatively examine the microstructural changes occurring during solution heat treatment. A solution heat treatment of 15 minutes at 475 [degrees]C, or even more at 525...

Regulatory News: To meet increasingly strong global demand for quenched and tempered (Q&T) steels, SSAB today announced a SEK 5.3 billion investment program to further develop the company's production base in Sweden and the United States. The investments will result in a major increase of the volume of Q&T steels. "This shows that we have a firm belief in the future. The investment program is part of SSAB's strategic focus to strengthen the product portfolio towards more value...

By Mintz, B Gunawardana, W D; Su, H Aluminium in solution in the ferrite in ferrite/pearlite steels has been found to have little influence on strength of the ferrite probably because up-till recently it has been added in very small amounts (0.02-0.08 wt-%Al) as a grain refining addition. There is indeed some doubt in the literature as to whether Al can solid solution harden. This lack of knowledge has not been important while Al additions are small but recently Al has been added in much...

By Trabadelo, V Iturriza, I The microstructure of powder metallurgy T42 high speed steel has been analysed after isothermal annealing. The heat treatment parameters (austenitising temperature, annealing time and annealing temperature) have been chosen aiming at obtaining a moderate hardness (50 HRC) adequate for structural applications. It has been demonstrated that it is possible to attain the targeted hardness through a globular pearlitic matrix microstructure at temperatures markedly...

By Das, S Singh, S B; Mohanty, O N; Bhadeshia, H K D H The basic science behind bake hardening steels is well understood in terms of the interactions between interstitial solutes and dislocations. However, the manufacture of such alloys involves a variety of other variables, the interactions between which are influential in controlling the extent of hardening. In the present work, a model which includes the chemical composition of the steel, the strain before aging and the annealing and...

By Villanueva, D M E; Junior, F C P; Plaut, R L; Padilha, A F The present work studies, in a comparative manner, the sigma phase precipitation of three stainless steels: austenitic type 316L (17Cr-12Ni-2.5Mo, wt-%), superferritic type DIN W. Nr. 1.4575 (Nb- 28Cr-4Ni-2Mo, wt-%) and duplex type DIN W. Nr. 1.4462 or UNS S31803 (22Cr-5.5Ni-3Mo-0.14N, wt-%). In austenitic stainless steel, the formation of sigma phase occurred both at austenite grain boundaries and inside delta ferrite islands....
