What Types of Materials Are Induction Hardened?
Induction heat treatment can be applied to wide range of ductile cast iron materials and steel.
Normally, medium carbon steels (% 0,35 – % 0,50 carbon) give satisfactory hardening results.
In addition, high quality (GGG 50 – 70) sfreo cast iron materials fall into this class.
There is a cracking risk in higher carbon steels.
