Tempering and De-Embrittlement

Our two Calibrated "JLS" ovens with accurate time and temperature controls have an operating temperature up to 470ºC and are kitted out with racks and baskets to Temper / Stress relieve springs and even to anneal brass components.

De-Embrittlement of Zinc Plated Spring Steel

Our standard time and temperature for de-embrittlement is 2 hours @ 200ºC on commercial zinc plating of wire & flat metal springs.

This, in our experience, is sufficient to remove any hydrogen that our plating techniques produce... however if you require a longer time of higher temperature, this must be requested on your order.

If a plating spec is quoted, then de-embrittlement will be carried out accordingly.
