What is quenched & tempered steel plate?
Quenched and tempered steel is stronger and harder than most ordinary grades. The Quenched & Tempered Steel Plate is produced using a heat treatment procedure that influences the quality of heavy plates. The process follows a 2 stage heat treatment process. In stage 1, quenched and tempered plate includes hardening wherein the plate is austenitized at 500 degrees C and quickly cooled.
The plates are water quenched, where the plate is clamped to avoid warpage. In stage 2, the material is tempered to attain the desired Quenched And Tempered Steel Properties. These plates have extremely fine grained and homogenous microstructure. The plates are designed in thickness from 6mm to 150mm with lengths up to 18000mm. The Quenched And Tempered Steel Advantages allow it to have superior strength, hardness, and excellent ductility. This steel also has good elasticity and ductility. The Quenched And Tempered Steel Cost Per Ton vary from $700 to $800.
The cost of this material is based on its size, thickness, and other customizations. The major difference between Quenched And Tempered Steel Vs Normalized steel is their different heat treatment procedures. In normalizing, the metal is heated at certain temperatures and is usually cooled faster than annealing, which is slower than quenching.
