Heat Treating of Irons and Steels
Heat Treating of High-Alloy Graphitic Irons
High-alloy graphitic cast irons are used primarily in applications requiring corrosion resistance or strength and oxidation resistance in high-temperature service. This article describes the properties, applications and heat treatment processes of high-alloy graphitic cast irons, including austenitic gray irons and austenitic ductile irons. It also provides a discussion on the heat treatment of high-silicon irons for heat resisting and corrosion resisting applications.
