Other details:

neutral hardening is a heat treatment used to achieve high hardness/strength on steel. It consists of austenitising, quenching and tempering, in order to retain a tempered martensite or bainite structure.

There are several benefits of neutral hardening, depending on the steel type:

  • Heavy loaded parts can be given an optimal combination of high strength, toughness and, if applicable, temperature resistance

  • Such parts can be made lighter and more stiff, due to higher strength

  • Tools and dies get the required high wear and/or heat resistance while maintaining toughness

  • Parts that need grinding to low roughness, acquire the required machinability

  • For all these purposes, if the parts are made of martensitic stainless steels, the corrosion resistance is only available after the heat treatment

Tool steels: the desired properties of high hardness, wear resistance, heat resistance and machinability can only be given by hardening.

Martensitic stainless steels: these steels only get their maximum corrosion resistance by hardening.

For all steel types: during the shaping of the parts, (takes place before the heat treatment), the material is relatively soft and therefore easy to machine.
