Technological properties

Application areas

In heat-treated, hardened condition (up to 69 HRC), Ferro-Titanit® can be used to solve many wear problems economically.

Corrosion properties

Because of its high chromium and reduced carbon content, this grade is recommended in cases requiring elevated corrosion resistance.

General machinability

In as-delivered condition, this material can be machined by conventional methods.

Heat Treatment

Soft annealing: 750°C, 10 hr (Cooling in furnace) Hardness: 51 HRC - Stress-relief-annealing: 600-650°C (cooling in Furnace) - Hardening: 1080°C and quenching in vacuum (1 bar N2) - Temepering 180°C (Hardness:67 HRC)
