I am looking for recommendations on the heat treatment of ASTM A487 4C. The ASTM specification gives 1600F for austenitizing treatment and 1150F for the tempering heat treatment. I have seen normalizing and austenitizing performed on this material, up to 1700F, and tempering up to 1200F. Does anyone have experience with the heat treatment of this material?
