Tempering

After hardening a steel component, it becomes brittle and has high residual stress. Tempering is an operation used to modify the properties of steel hardened by quenching for the purpose of increasing its usefulness. Tempering results in a reduction of brittleness and removal of internal strains caused during hardening. Steel must be tempered after the hardening process.

The steel, after being quenched in the hardening process, is reheated to a temperature slightly above the temperature range at which it is to be used but below the lower critical temperature. These temperatures varies from 100°C to 700°C

  • To relieve internal stresses caused by hardening.

  • To reduce brittleness.

  • To improve ductility, strength and toughness.

  • To increase wear resistance.

  • To obtain desired mechanical properties.
