Metal heat treatment service provides thermal processing of both ferrous and non-ferrous metal. This type of service changes the physical and at times chemical properties of the metal. The most frequent application is metallurgical (process and technology of metals).

Heat treatment service on metal comes up with an efficient way to influence the properties of the metal by controlling the rate of cooling and the rate of diffusion within the microstructure. This is purposely used to modify the mechanical properties of a metallic alloy, controlling properties such as elasticity, hardness, toughness, strength and ductility. There are different types of heat treatment.

Some of them are:

• Tempering – through this process, the metal attains high levels of toughness with a specific tensile strength by hardening then annealing at elevated temperatures.
• Normalising – results to an even, fine-grained microstructure.
• Hardening (Quench Hardening) – is the process of reaching the highest potential level of hardness in the metal.
• Warm Bath Hardening – is the process of hardening a metal by cooling in salt.
• Soft Annealing – throughout this process, the cementite(chemical compound of iron and carbon) lamination of the perlite(amorphous volcanic glass that has a relatively high water content) is changed to a spherical structure known as granular cementite. Granular cementite provides the condition for finest workability for all types of cold working.
• Surface Hardening – is used where a hard and wear-resistant exterior with sturdy core properties is needed.
