  • 127) ‘If maximum properties are required, the heat treatment consists of a solution treatment at high temperature followed by a quench and then natural or artificial aging.’
  • 128) ‘When high hardness and wear resistance are the ultimate aim of this treatment, the temperature of the quench bath is usually held between 230 and 290°C.’
  • 129) ‘The other way for classifying tool steels is according to the type of quench required to harden the steel.’
  • 130) ‘Combinations of elements can be chosen so that the volume change is reduced and also the risk of quench cracking.’
  • 131) ‘A combination of quench rate and the presence of subgrains or hot working structure can influence strength.’
