Molasses quench


Recommended Posts

I was surfing the web and came across this interesting study from the association of metallurgical engineers of serbia. They diluted molasses with water to the viscosity of 40wt oil and used it as a quench for high carbon steel. From the info provided, it looks like the molasses quench hardened better than the oil.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post PDFs to the forum so if the moderators need to delete or move this post please do
