Abstract : Chemical Vapour Deposition CVD of hard coatings onto steels requires thorough controlling of dimensions and hardness. Dimensional and hardness problems depend on the metallurgical properties of the base and the heat treatments which are applied to the steel before and at the application of CVD. Some information on the control of the dimensions and the hardness of high-carbon high-chromium tool steels which have to be coated with hard compounds by CVD at high temperatures HTCVD was already presented some years ago 1. The paper which is now proposed will deal with some dimensional and hardness problems which are connected to the production of hard coatings on tool steels by means of CVD at medium temperatures MTCVD. Such processes are usually applied to tools which have been already heattreated at least quenched and tempered and finally worked ground and polished. Thus MTCVD involves an additional heat treatment tempering and may provoke metallurgical reactions in the base which cause changes in dimensions and hardness. Starting with some components in the microstructure of steels and their specific volumes, an introduction into the dimensional changes of steels due to hardening, tempering and subcooling will be presented. The dimensional stability of steels depends predominantly on the retained austenite and the degree of supersaturation with alloying elements. The hardness of high-carbon high-chromium tool steels will be discussed by means of spatial diagramms which show the hardness HV30 as a function of austenitizing temperature Ta and tempering temperature Tt at constant tempering time tt, and also as a function of Ta and tt at constant Tt. The influence of multiple tempering will be discussed with respect to the application of MTCVD.
