Process for steel applications that produces a ductile and stable bainitic structure. The treatment is done in 2 steps – first heat into the austenite phase and then quench to a temperature level so that the austenite is transformed into bainite instead of martensite. Bainite is tougher than martensite.


  • Lower distortion compared to a traditional quench and temper process
  • Tougher parts
  • Shock resistance
