Heat Treatment:
Heat treatment temperatures, including rate of heating, cooling and soaking times will vary due to factors such as the shape and size of each EN30B steel component. Other considerations during the heat treatment process include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Please consult your heat treatment provider for full guidance on heat treatment of this 4.25% nickel alloy steel.

ForgingHeat the steel carefully to the forging temperature of 1000-1100°C, soak well. After forging, cool slowly in a furnace to 100°C maximum and anneal immediately.
AnnealingTo obtain the softest condition heat carefully to 630-650°C. Soak for a minimum of 2 hours, then cool in the furnace or in air. It is advisable to repeat this treatment to obtain the best machining characteristics.
Stress RelievingWhere the machining operations have been severe, we recommend stress relieving EN30B alloy steel before finish machining and hardening. Heat carefully to 630-650°C then cool in the furnace or in still air.
HardeningHeat uniformly to 810-830°C and when thoroughly soaked at this temperature cool in air or quench in oil according to mass. Hardening from neutral salt baths will help to prevent scaling or decarburisation and is strongly recommended. Pre heat at 300-400°C, raise to the hardening temperature of 810-830°C, quench into salt standing at 300-320°C.  Withdraw and cool in air. Alternatively, tools may be vacuum hardened. If desired, hardened and tempered tools can be cyanide hardened to give a shallow carburised case to die surfaces with increased hardness values up to Rockwell C56-60. Temper as soon as tools are hand-warm.
TemperingRe heat to the relevant tempering temperature. Soak for at least 2 hours per 25mm of ruling section. Withdraw from the furnace and cool in still air. Tempering between 275-450°C is not advised as tempering within this range will reduce the impact value.
