Steel Hardening in Kent

Steel can be treated by being heated to give it different properties of hardness and softness. However, this is dependent on the level of carbon in the steel. Only steel which has a higher amount of carbon in it can be hardened. The process of steel hardening involves heating the steel and then cooling it quickly, resulting in increased steel hardness and mechanical strength.

Heat treatment provides a way of altering and manipulating the properties of the metal by, for example, controlling the rate of cooling. The process of heat treatment is used to either prepare a metal for subsequent processing or to attach an additional property, such as surface hardness, to improve its performance in application. Steel requires heat treatment to increase its strength as well as its hardness.
