Abstract

Martensitic stainless steel are widely using for their good mechanical properties and moderate corrosion resistance. Oil quenching and tempering process offer enormous advantage to the martensite production because the treatment result can reveal optimum combination of toughness and ductility. The material used in this study was SS440C martensitic stainless steel. Quench and temper process was used as a major heat treatment method. The microstructure after quenched process consist of martensite structure with small amount of retained austenite. The optimum mechanical properties were found after tempering in martensite structure. But with more increase in the tempering temperature the mechanical properties are gradually decrease. In the present study, effect of heating temperature on microstructure and hardness had been invstigated.
