We have ben forging SS 304L grade steel in the temperature range 1150 - 1000 C and water quenching. Further it is Solution annealed and water quenched (soaking at 1060 C - 1 hour per inch thickness). we are getting grain boundary carbides despite the solutionizing treatment. can anybody what could be the reason for this? Sometimes the finish forging temperature goes as low as 900 C.
