Hardening D-2 Flat Bar Stock: In a control temperature oven, heat slowly to between 1875-1925°F (788-843°C), and should have a dark yellow color. Remove from heat and allow to air-cool.
Tempering D-2 Flat Bar Stock: Temper your D-2 flat bar stock by reheating to 500-950°F to relieve the stresses caused by hardening process, and to achieve the hardness needed. The lower the temperature the d2 flat bar is reheated to, the higher the level of hardness remains. Reheat for no less than 1 hour, and up to two hours.
