Heat Treatment Process Of Stainless Steel Plate

The heat treatment of stainless steel plate is used to change its physical and mechanical properties without changing the shape. It is an indispensable process for manufacturing stainless steel plates, adding the ideal characteristics of stainless steel plates, and further processing. Different heat treatment processes for stainless steel plates involve heating and cooling, such as steel being heat-treated for various commercial uses. The common purpose of heat treatment is to increase strength, hardness, toughness, processability, formability, ductility, and elasticity. The effects of cooling stages vary depending on the stainless steel plate and process. When steel is rapidly cooled, it hardens, while solution annealing softens during the rapid cooling phase.

  Although stainless steel plates have multiple heat treatments, two super important heat treatment methods are annealing and tempering. Annealing is the process of heating steel to a specified temperature and then cooling it at a very slow and controlled rate. Annealing is used to soften and cool stainless steel plates to improve machinability and electrical conductivity. Annealing can also restore ductility. During cold working, stainless steel plates will harden to the point of cracking. By annealing the stainless steel sheet in advance, cold work can be performed without the risk of cracking.

General Properties of 904L Stainless Steel

Alloy 904L was originally developed to resist environments containing dilute sulfuric acid. It also has good resistance to other inorganic acids such as hot phosphoric
