Metal armor can be subjected to processes that increase their performance, such as thermal quenching and tempering. The treatments confer a tempered martensitic microstructure capacity revalidated, a qualification for the life, without losses of tenacity. In addition, when these processes are of quality, an experiment of other constituents that act in decreasing way in the properties is inferior to the established limit, as is the case of the retained austenite. Thus, after thermal quenching and tempering at the following temperatures: 310 ° C; 425 ° C and 610 ° C, the ballistic steel was analyzed metallographically, by means of microscopies and X rays diffraction, causing the material analyzed to be tested both mechanically and ballistically.
