The paper presents an analysis of classical heat treatments, which can be applied to AISI310S steel samples. The influence of these heat treatments was highlighted by micro-hardness measurements – Vickers method, and also the structural analysis made on electronic microscope, at different magnitudes. The AISI 310S steel is part of chrome-nickel stainless steels and presents good resistance properties. These properties are due to principal alloying elements (nickel, chrome) and recommend its being used in corrosive medium and high temperatures.
