The effect of the heat treatment on the 7CrMoVTiB10-10 steel's microstructure and its properties
Abstract: According to the European Standard PN-EN 10216-2 two types of the heat treatment could apply to 7CrMoVTiB10-10 – the modern bainitic boiler steel. The 7CrMoVTiB10-10 steel may have different properties, depending on the chosen method of the heat treatment. This paper shows the differences in the microstructure and the properties occuring after two processes: one of them including normalization and tempering, and the other – hardening and tempering.
Keywords: steel, microstructure, heat treatment, 7CrMoVTiB10-10, normalizing, hardening, tempering
