Hardening (Quenching and tempering)

Hardening (Quenching and tempering)

In hardening, the product is not cooled by air, but it is quenched in for example water or oil (Quenching / Hardening).

It is a heat treatment used to achieve a high degree of hardness or strength in the steel. It consists of austenitizing, quenching (or scaring) and tempering (or annealing). This provides a glorified martensitic or bainite structure. 

The mechanical material properties change. The chemical properties do not, however.

LKL Staal provides, among others:
- Hardening and annealing (Quenched & tempered) Grade 1 (I)
- Hardening and annealing (Quenched & tempered) Grade 2 (II)
