It is used in Automotive and Mechanical engineering for heat-treated components which have been subjected to very high wear stresses, such as cam plates, eccentrics or pinion shafts.
Soft annealing: 650-700°C (Slow furnace cooling down), Quenching: 870-930°C (Oil, Water, Polymer), Tempering: 580-700°C (Air), Nitriding: 480-570°C
It is formable at 850-1050°C and should then cooled slowly.
Quenched and Tempered
It is difficult to weld and should will not used be in welded constructions.
