High Temp Alloy Age Hardening
Age hardening, also called precipitation hardening, is a spontaneous change in properties of a metal where the material is restored toward equilibrium and away from an unstable condition induced by a prior operation. Though some age hardening occurs at room temperature over long periods of time, the process is greatly accelerated through exposure to elevated temperatures.
Solution annealing and age hardening of high temperature alloys such as Inconel 718 and stainless steels such as 17-4 and 15-5 are regularly processed at CST when vacuum is not required.
A wide range of furnaces are available to handle both large and small high temp alloy parts.
CST specializes in age hardening service and produces products of superior caliber.
