Heat Treating of Hot-Work Tool Steels
This article focuses on heat treating of the most important H-series and low-alloy hot-work tool steels, namely, normalizing, annealing, stress relieving, preheating, austenitizing, quenching, tempering, and surface hardening. It describes the heat-treating procedure for hot-work tools using examples. The article provides information on the North American Die-Casting Association's requirements for steel grades and heat treatment of dies made of hot-work tool steels. It also describes the chemical compositions and mechanical and metallurgical properties of hot-work tool steels.
