Tempering in the North

Steel is an alloy of iron, and in various applications it can expect to be exposed to a great deal of wear and tear. In order to withstand this wear and tear while still continuing to thrive, the steel is first hardening and then tempered to ensure it stands up to the level of usage it’s intended for.

Tempering depends on the temperature and the intended use of the component piece of steel. Tempering is a process in metallurgy used to improve the characteristics of a metal, usually steel. Tempering has the effect of toughening and strengthening the component metal while reducing the brittleness and reducing internal stresses.
