Heat Treating Companies in the UKMetals can be heat treated to alter the properties of strength, ductility, toughness, hardness or resistance to corrosion. Common heat treatment processes include annealing (annealing softens the metal by allowing recovery of cold work and grain growth), precipitation hardening, quenching (quenching can be used to harden alloy steels, or in precipitation hardenable alloys, to trap dissolved solute atoms in solution), and tempering (tempering will cause the dissolved alloying elements to precipitate, or in the case of quenched steels, improve impact strength and ductile properties).
