1.Low hardening temperature.
2.Excellent size stability.
A-10 has excellent non-seizing properties for metal on metal
A-10 in the annealed condition has a machinability rating of 90% of
a 1% carbon tool steel. It also offers excellent grindability.
Preferably A-10 should be atmosphere or vacuum annealed at 1450°F.
Furnace cool to 1000°F at approximately 100° per hour,then cool in
still air. This should result in a maximum hardness of 269 Brinell.
