It is this matrix phase which provides hardening through precipitation after the aging treat­ ment. The Vickers microhardness and Rock­ well hardness in the as-cast, solutionized, and aged conditions are compared in Table II. The Vickers hardness in the as­ cast condition is 358, which decreases significantly upon solutionizing through the eliminationof microsegregation. Then the hardness of the material increases to 474 after the aging treatment. The Rock­ well hardness (Rc) follows a similar trend. The alloy also offers good strength in the as-cast condition, which is further im­ proved by the two-step heat treatment (i.e., solutionizing and aging). Table III compares the properties of 8erylco 42C with AISI304 stainless steel. The casting temperatures for the 42C al­ loy are 1,230-1 ,343°C, and, for stain­ less steel, the corresponding range is 1,482-1 ,593°C. The lower casting tem­ peratures give manufacturing flexibility during processing by using lower cost nonferrous materials and processes. The modulus values are comparable.

The important aspect to note is thatthe thermal conductivity ofthe material is nearly twice that of stainless steel, enabling rotating applications where heat dissipation is a critical attribute.
