Dear all!! It is generally said that carbon steel parts can nor work at tempeartures higher than, approx. 800 F due to carbide phase may be converted to graphite, but I do not know the influence of time in that process, I mean, is there a minimum necesary time for that process to happen? That is to say, would it be allowable for a carbon steel to work over 800F during a short period of time? any recommmendation about this issue?
Thakns for any help.
