HRP Steel is heat treatable material that is manufactured by Krakatu Company Steel Indonesian, which the specification of HRP steel is classified as an armor 2nd class.To get the hardness and high strength, it is quenched (by heating it up to austenite temperature and held for a few moments, then cooled with water at T°C).Then the HRP Steel is heat treated again tempering (by heating it up to a certain temperature below the eutectoid line and retained for a while, then cooled with atmospheric air media) to improve its ductility. The purpose of this heat treatment is to improve the micro-structure that can affect the value of hardness. There are two additional (?) methods used in this research for treatment of that material: mechanical bending treatment with radius 55 mm and 60 mm. Analysis of the results of research shows that bending treatment and heat treatment modifies the morphology of micro-structure. In the 55 mm bending radius treatment and quenching-tempering treatment, a micro-structure formed of martensite structure that has higher percentage and has the form of a smooth martensite structure so that the value of Vickers hardness number is higher than the other treatment of 453 VHN treatment.
