Heat Treating of Irons and Steels
Heat Treating of Cold-Work Tool Steels—Medium-Alloy Air-Hardening, High-Carbon High-Chromium and High-Vanadium-Powder Metallurgy Steels
This article focuses on various heat-treating practices, namely, normalizing, annealing, stress relieving, preheating, austenitizing, quenching, tempering, and nitriding for cold-work tool steels. The cold-work tool steels include medium-alloy air-hardening tool steels, high-carbon high-chromium tool steels, and high-vanadium-powder metallurgy tool steels. The article also describes the properties, types, nominal compositions and designations of these cold-work tool steels.
