Abstract

Cold treating of steel can be used to enhance the transformation of austenite to martensite and improve the stress relief of castings and machined parts. Cryogenic treatment of steel is a distinct process that uses extreme cold to modify the performance of materials. This article explains the practices employed and equipment used in the cold treatment of steel. It also presents the results of using cryogenic treatment to enhance steel properties.
