Why Heat Treat? All superalloys, whether precipitation hardened or not, generally require the application of heat for some period of time for purposes of preparing solid material for a subsequent processing step (ingot cogging, component forging, etc.). In addition, some chemical processing, such as coating, requires that heat and resultant high temperatures be applied to cause the chemical changes to occur. In order to effect microstructural changes in alloys, heat invariably is required. Thus, heat treatment is the logical consequence of the processing requirements for superalloys as well as the logical precursor for the generation of optimal properties for many superalloy applications.
