Facts About Metal Hardness and Heat Treating

By | News

Hardness is the nearly universal measurement of heat treating performance. This is because specific materials processed to the required hardness perform well under certain loads. For example, spring steel at a hardness of Rockwell C45 performs well as a spring. Experience has shown that a hardness of Rc45 in spring steel correlates with toughness, resilience, and high fatigue strength. The correlation is consistent and Rc45 is accepted as a quality hardness in heat-treated springs, even though the hardness itself is not an important characteristic of a spring. For many parts where tensile strength, toughness, or fatigue strength may be the…
