The castings already are distorted enough to require dimensional compromises. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. There is no issue involved.

Please contact us at webmaster matweb. The chemical composition of a class and type that is, Class I, Type A shall conform to the range of values specified for carbon, manganese, silicon, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, copper, phosphorus, and sulfur.

We used to stress relief anneal cylinders that we cast, we made sure to stay sub-critical.

High Chrome White Iron – Abrasion Resistant Cast Irons

We have approached the foundry to answer questions about softening and heat treating options. If the issue is that they take longer to machine or they go through tooling faster, can you throw more money at the machine shop to just work through it?

Questions or comments about MatWeb? Or if you don’t have an account with us yet, atsm click here aa532 register. My question is, can high chrome cast iron be “heat treated” to re-harden to HB after annealing or even tempering to ?

So now we are waiting to hear from the foundry about how to get the hardness down to awtm levels. For The shorter, simpler part we called for an as cast hardness of HB.

Hardness test shall also be made.

Please read our License Agreement regarding materials data and our Privacy Policy. About 4 feet mm long. The longer, more complicated part calls for the part to be annealed to HB.

If distortion is a possibility and it sounds like it is then re-hardening is going to be mighty risky, so I’d much prefer machining to be the last step. These alloys may be made by melting process and shall have microstructures that consist of carbides, martensite, bainite, austenite, and in exceptional cases, minor amounts of graphite or pearlite.

We are having an issue machining the parts.
