Fabrication and Heat Treatment
Super alloys are metallic alloys used at high temperatures
above 540ºC (1000ºF) where high surface stability and deformation
resistance are mainly required. Three major classes of super alloys
include iron-base, nickel-base and cobalt-base alloys. The iron-base
super alloys are generally wrought alloys with stainless steel
technology. Nickel-base and cobalt-base super alloys may be cast or
wrought based on its composition or application. Super alloys are
commonly forged, rolled to sheet or produced in various shapes.
However, highly alloyed compositions are produced as castings.

Fabrication and Heat
Super alloy 21-2N valve steel can be machined similar to that
of the standard 18-8 stainless steels.
Forming of super alloy 21-2N valve steel can be performed at
950 to 1100ºC (1742 to 2012ºF).
Super alloy 21-2N valve steel can be tempered at 730 to 780ºC
(1346 to 1436ºF)
Super alloy 21-2N valve steel can be hardened at 1140 to
1180ºC (2084 to 2156ºF) and then water quenched.
Super alloy 21-2N valve steel finds its application in the
manufacture of automotive valve.
