Austempering is a high performance heat treat process that, when applied to ferrous materials, produces components that have properties superior to those processed by conventional means. Austempered materials include: Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI), Austempered Steels, Carbo-Austempered(TM) Steels, Carbidic Austempered Ductile Iron (CADI). Off-Highway applications of each of these materials will be discussed.
