Home Knowledge center Material impact of line-heating in shipbuilding on steel panels

Line heating

IACS standard No.47 allows line heating with temperatures up to 650 °C before quenching, however, operators can sometimes be eager to speed up the process with higher temperatures. This causes the forming of Martensite when quenching with water, which in turn makes the steel brittle.
