Heat Treatment Of Metal U Clip Fasteners

The tempering treatment of Metal U Clip Fasteners is a heat treatment process commonly used to improve the mechanical properties and stability of materials. Tempering treatment is very common in metal processing, especially after quenching, to eliminate internal stress and brittleness generated during the quenching process, while adjusting the hardness, strength, plasticity, and toughness of the material.

For the tempering treatment of Metal U Clip Fasteners, the general steps are as follows:

Heating: Heat the quenched Metal U Clip Fasteners to an appropriate temperature below the lower critical temperature. This temperature is usually determined based on the type of material and the required properties.

Insulation: Maintain at a selected temperature for a period of time to achieve a stable internal structure of the material. The length of insulation time can also affect the performance of the material.

Cooling: Cool the material to room temperature in a certain way. The cooling method can be natural cooling or cooling in media such as air, water, or oil.

The main purposes of tempering treatment include:

Eliminating internal stress and brittleness: During the quenching process, significant stress and brittleness are generated inside the material. Tempering treatment can eliminate these stresses and brittleness through heating and insulation, making the material more stable.

Adjusting mechanical properties: By adjusting the tempering temperature and insulation time, the mechanical properties of materials such as hardness, strength, plasticity, and toughness can be changed to meet different usage requirements.

Stable size and shape: Tempering treatment can stabilize the metallographic structure of materials, reducing size and shape changes caused by temperature changes during use.
