Abstract

The first objective of this research is to study the effects of additions of sulfur on the solidification reactions and as-cast structure of M2 high speed steel and determine the composition of the sulfide inclusions in the nominal M2S high speed steel. The results of this study may be of use in understanding the enhancement of machinability of sulfurized tool steel over similar nonsulfurized material. The second objective is to determine the products that orignate from the slope change reaction. The final objective is to characterize the spheroidization kinetics of the eutectic carbides in M2 high speed steel during a pre-forging heat treatment.
