Age/Precipitation Hardening

Age/Precipitation Hardening is performed after solution treating of precipitation hardening (PH) grades of stainless steel. When PH stainless steels are heated between 900ºF and 1200ºF, secondary phase particles precipitate out of the previously formed solid solution. These particles serve as a strengthening and hardening mechanism.
