The effects of quenching and tempering temperatures on the tensile, impact and corrosion properties of A487 alloy cast with different C contents of 0.16, 0.19 to 0.23 wt.% were examined. The impact tests were conducted at and and the immersion test was performed using 3.5% NaCl solution for 14 days. The quenching temperature affected the mechanical properties of A487 alloy cast, while the magnitude of change varied depending on the C content. The increase in tempering temperature showed the typical trend of decreasing tensile strength and increasing impact properties. The change in quenching and tempering temperature in this study did not affect the corrosion properties of A487 alloy significantly. The change in mechanical and corrosion properties of A487 with different C contents was discussed based on the microstructural and fractographic observation.
