Figure: Reduction rates and hardness of TY100 and TY200 (reference)

Figure: Reduction rates and mechanical properties of TY100 and TY200 (reference)

The figure shows the changes in physical properties caused by plastic working of TY100 and TY200.

Figure: Example of relationship between heat treatment temperatures and hardness of precipitation-hardened material

The precipitation-hardened materials of the TY and other series increase in hardness when heat-treated under appropriate conditions.
