Need data of 12L14

Need data of 12L14

Need data of 12L14

I bought some 12L14 to produce solenoid, but the supplier could not give me much technical data.  Could anyone give me or tell me where I can find information (such as heat treatment, magnetic curves, etc) of 12L14?  Thanks for the help!

RE: Need data of 12L14

SAE 12L14 does not respond to quench and temper heat treatments, meaning those that intend to produce a martensitic microstructure.  It is possible to surface harden this alloy through nitriding or carburizing.  I suggest you look at the appropriate ASM Handbooks such as Volume 1 and Volume 4.

RE: Need data of 12L14

thanks a lot!
