-- As a general rule steel should be worked when it is in the austenitic state.
There are many possibilities yet to be developed with the carburizing of alloy steels, which can produce a very tough, tenacious austenitic case which becomes hard on cooling in air, and still retains a soft, pearlitic core.
An austenitic case is not necessarily file hard, but has a very great resistance to abrasive wear.
Most importantly, since record-high prices for nickel, molybdenum, chrome and cobalt have driven standard 300-series of austenitic stainless steels to heights never before seen, there have been accelerated conferences between design engineers and purchasing managers to gauge the utility of alternative ferritic grades in the 400 series; manganese-bearing and lower-nickel 200 series or silicon-containing 600 series austenitic alloys or such other materials as composites and coated carbon steels.
Analyst Peter Fish at MEPS (International) in Sheffield, England, says that buyer surveys worldwide show that "specifiers are no longer slavishly following past design and purchasing practices which kept the austenitic grades in such a strong market position."
