In a few short years, this has become the established reference for tool makers, heat treaters, and engineers seeking step-by-step recipes for properly heat treating a wide range of tool steels, plus practical information about machinability, shock resistance, wear, and extending tool life. Now, the completely revised and expanded Second Edition of the best selling Heat Treatment, Selection, and Application of Tool Steels is available. It has been extensively updated and includes the following significant new additions: an entirely new chapter on the popular powdered tool steel CPM 10V; a thorough new section on carburizing thoroughly describes the process and its benefits; the section on cryogenic treatment has been completely rewritten to describe the theory and process; and a comprehensive glossary of related terms has been added. As in the first edition, valuable tables of properties, attributed, qualities, and shortcomings of popular tool steels are also included.
