Heat Treating Powder Metallurgy Materials

Sponsored by MPIF

Heat treating is a necessary process to control the properties of the final powder metallurgy part, such as hardness and strength. Although some properties associated with heat treating can be attained through sintering alone, there are additional heat treatment processes that are needed to give each component its desired properties, such as carburizing, hardening, and tempering, just to name a few.
