Heat Treating A2 Tool Steel

  1. Aug 28, 2012 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I have a part that's made of A2 Tool Steel (unknown HRC). It needs to be able to withstand a bending force, stress of approx. 700 MPa, without plastically deforming. Is there a method to heat treat it to be able to withstand that stress?

    Isn't the yield strength of A2 tool steel like 1300MPa? This isn't enough?. Tempering it say 100 degrees more barely increases the strength.
