What are the characteristics of CR450/950TW twin induced plasticity steel?
CR450/950TW twinning induced plasticity steel has the following characteristics:
Dual-phase structure: This steel is a dual-phase steel composed of bainite and martensite, in which bainite is a flexible structure and martensite is a brittle and hard structure. This dual phase structure gives this steel grade excellent strength and ductility.
Twin structure: A large number of twin structures can be formed in the steel through the method of twin crystal induced plasticity, thereby improving its plasticity and toughness. Twin structure refers to a crystal structure formed by two basically identical crystal lattices along a specific plane, which can be deformed when the material is stressed to improve the plasticity and toughness of the material.
High strength: The yield strength of CR450/950TW steel is usually around 450 MPa, which is much higher than that of ordinary carbon steel.
High ductility: The elongation rate of this steel can reach more than 30%, has good deformation ability, and is not easy to break.

What is the manufacturing process of CR450/950TW twin induced plasticity steel?
The manufacturing process of CR450/950TW twin-induced plasticity steel mainly includes the following steps:
Material selection: choose the appropriate chemical composition, usually the chemical composition of the steel contains C, Si, Mn, Cr, Mo and other elements.
Heat treatment: Heat the raw material to a certain temperature for heat treatment to form ferrite and austenite structures. In the specific operation process, methods such as rapid cooling and quenching can be used.
Reheating: reheating the heat-treated material to achieve the effect of twinning induced plasticity, so that a large number of twinning structures can be formed. This step can be realized by methods such as austempering and annealing.
Hot rolling: The reheated material is hot rolled to form the desired thickness and size for further processing.
Cooling: The hot-rolled material is cooled to obtain the required physical and mechanical properties.
Trim and inspection: Trim and inspect the manufactured steel plate to remove surface defects and ensure that it meets the requirements of relevant standards and specifications.
How is CR450/950TW twin induced plasticity steel heat treated?
The specific steps of heat treatment of CR450/950TW twinning induced plasticity steel are as follows:
Heat treatment temperature: first heat CR450/950TW steel to an appropriate temperature. Usually, the heat treatment temperature of this steel is between 700°C and 900°C. This temperature range can be adjusted according to specific application requirements.
Holding time: keep the heated steel at the heat treatment temperature for a certain period of time, so that it can reach a uniform organizational state. The holding time usually ranges from a few minutes to tens of minutes, and the specific time depends on factors such as the heat treatment temperature and the thickness of the steel plate.
Cooling method: Cool the steel after heat treatment with an appropriate method. In general, rapid cooling is the key to achieve twin-induced plasticity. Methods such as water quenching and oil quenching can be used, and relatively slow methods such as air cooling can also be used.
After heat treatment, the steel needs to be further processed to obtain the desired dimensional and mechanical properties.
