This study investigates the effect of post heat treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of IS2062 steels. Similar metal joints of IS2062 weldments are prepared by using MIG welding process. This melting is occurring at edges of the plates because of sufficient amount of heat energy is passing over the plate per unit time and density of energy is supplied to the wire. In this connection, heating and cooling of weldment some of the disturbances in metallurgical and mechanical point of view. To overcome we will choose suitable post weld heat treatment to avoid the disturbances and improve industrial requirement irrespective of the mechanical, microstructure of the weldment. The objective is to determine the optimum post weld heat treatment method for the IS2062 steel. After welding, the effects of post weld heat treatment on weld metal microstructure and mechanical properties including weldment tensile strength, impact and hardness over the room temperature range 32°C are investigated. In particular this study the effect of these properties to understand estimate heat treatments on the tensile impact, Hardness materials are considered as weldments before heat treatment and after post weld heat treatment.
