Phase Transition

Business / Machine Shop / Phase Transition: Iron phase transitions are at room temperature to 1,670°F (910°C) iron is body-center cubic, 1670°F (910°C) to 2535°F (1388°C) iron is face-center cubic and 2535°F (1390°C) the melting point of iron to 2800°F (1538°C) iron is again body-center cubic. These changes are also called allotropic transformations.
