Heat Treating of Irons and Steels
Heat Treatment of Malleable and Compacted-Graphite Irons
This article focuses on heat treatment of malleable and compacted-graphite irons to produce ferritic and pearlitic malleable irons. It describes the heat treatment cycles of malleable iron, including martempering, tempering, bainitic heat treatment, and surface hardening. The article provides information on the mechanical and physical properties of compacted-graphite irons, which are determined by the graphite shape and the pearlite/ferrite ratio.
