High carbon steel, heat treatment, quenching, normalizing properties


In this paper, it tells about to improve the material properties of the specimen of conventional HCS by heat treated at different temperature like 500,700 and 9000C both normalizing and quenching process will changes its physical, chemical, and mechanical properties compare to conventional HCS. Initially specimen preparation will be done with the help of lathe and shaper machine. Specimen subject on UTM machine for tensile test, Rockwell hardness machine, chemical composition and micro structure with SEM analysis .By an overall analyzing the graphs, the hardness value due to specimen in quenching process compare to other process will be more efficient and excellent tool performance. UTS, YS, YM, value observed increases at 500deg of normalizing process and 500deg of quenching process ,%elongation and % reduction will decreases respectively compare to others and normal HCS respectively. The micro structure changes from hyper to hypoeutectic particles so refine size of grain structure with homogeneous arrangement of grains consist ,better elastic characteristic and observed so it has changed from brittle to ductility, improve mach inability, increased hardness and improve internal stress of material improves life of specimen.
