Tempering in the south west

Tempering is a heat treatment technique performed on metals and alloys. Component metals can be exposed to a lot of wear and tear while in use so the steel must be hardened and then tempered to ensure that it’s able to withstand the wear and tear it may receive during its working life.

Tempering involves improving the characteristics of a metal by heating it to a high temperature before cooling it using air. Tempering toughens the metal or alloy, usually steel, by reducing the level of brittleness and internal stresses. The temperature required for tempering to be successful depends on the type of steel being used and the nature of its application.
