Q&T/Wear Plate


Quench hardening is achieved by heating the material to a certain temperature, differing upon material, and then rapidly cooling the material. This produces a harder material by either surface hardening or through-hardening varying on the rate at which the material is cooled. The material is then often tempered to reduce the brittleness that may increase from the quench hardening process.
