  • How the Crystal Structure of Carbon-Steel Changes during Tempering
    Heat treatment (tempering) is a metallurgical procedure to enhance the strength and toughness of steel. Tempering requires high temperatures, up to 1000℃, that can be reached with a heat treat oven or kiln. Untempered steel is a body-centered cubic (BCC) martensitic structure. The martensite structure exhibits high strength, but is prone to dislocations and line defects due to the tetragonal crystal structure from interstitial carbon atoms.
