Quenching

The quenching of steel is to heat the steel to a temperature above the critical temperature Ac3 (hypegmatized steel) or Ac1 (hyper-eutectoid steel), hold it for a period of time, make it all or part austenitized, and then cool it at a critical cooling rate. A rapid heat treatment process for martensite (or bainite) transformation below Ms (or isothermal near Ms). The solution treatment of materials such as aluminum alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys, tempered glass, or the heat treatment process with a rapid cooling process is also referred to as quenching.
