Recently investigated spheroidization processes can be divided into four groups: isothermal annealing at a temperature slightly below [A.
The condensates were investigated in the initial condition and after heat treatment, isothermal annealing in vacuum at T = 650[degrees]C, for 2 h.
For example, the Universal Instruments Consortium observed that, upon isothermal annealing at 150[degrees]C, some SnAgCu (SAC) solder joints showed increased void formation at the interface between the Cu-Sn intermetallic layer and the copper plating.
Changes in the polymer microstructure have been induced by well-defined thermal histories, namely, isothermal annealing experiments upon cooling from the melt and subsequent heating linear ramps.
The part required subsequent isothermal annealing and shot blasting.
Produced ingots of steel R6M5 (EBCHR) were subjected to homogenization isothermal annealing according to the scheme: austenization--heating up to 880-900 [degrees]C, seasoning for 3 h (eutectoid transformation), cooling down to 760-780 [degrees]C, isothermal seasoning for 6 h (diffusion transformation) with subsequent slow cooling with furnace down to 400 [degrees]C.
It was found that a very small broad endotherm appears below the crystallization temperature for samples crystallized at above 90[degrees]C, which suggests that further crystallization had occurred in the remnant amorphous regions during the cooling and heating processes after the isothermal annealing.
Previous studies performed on this class of materials produced by isothermal annealing revealed that annealing-induced changes of the mechanical properties are closely connected with the free-volumes reduction (Allia et al.
