Cold Treatment

What is Cold Treatment?

Cold Treatment is performed by exposing heat treated material to a subzero temperature, typically between -80ºF and -120ºF. This process reduces or eliminates the amount of retained austenite from the quenching process by transforming it to a martensitic state. Cold Treatment results in increased strength, dimensional stability, and relief of stress.
