Tempering - No tempering should be required, since the product is furnished to you in the pre- hardened condition (269/341 BHN). If you anticipate re-hardening to a higher hardness, inquire on our annealed product.

Annealing - Heat slowly to 1500°F and hold for 1/2 hour per inch of thickness. Furnace cool at 20°F per hour to 1230°F; air cool to room temperature. Expected hardness is 220 BHN.

* Above values are typical and are not guaranteed.

Thermal Treatment* (Annealed Stock)

Annealing - Heat slowly to 1450/1500°F and hold for 1/2 hour per inch of thickness. Furnace cool at 20°F per hour to 1230°F; air cool to room temperature.

Hardening - 1550/1580°F - Temper immediately. Do not let temperature fall below 1475°F between the hardening temp and quenching.

Typical Temper
Oil Quench from 1550°F
@ 500°F temper yields approx. Rockwell 50 "C"
@ 900°F temper yields approx. Rockwell 40 "C"
@ 1000°F temper yields approx. Rockwell 30 "C"

* Above values are typical and are not guaranteed.
