A series of large cross section D2 and M2 tool steels have been obtained and cross cut prior to heat treatment. Similar heat treating, time and temperatures, will be run in a salt bath furnace and a vacuum furnace. All parts will be tracked for process temperature via deep embedded thermocouples. Data reported, including metallurgical results, for an independent laboratory.
