Quenching and tempering consists of a two-stage heat-treatment process. Stage one includes hardening, in which the steel is austenitized to approximately 900°C and then quickly cooled with water or oil. Stage two consists of tempering the material to obtain the desired material properties. Quenching and tempering achieves a fine-grained and homogeneous microstructure. Quenched and tempered steel is characterized by high strength and good ductility.

We made it! But we are still not satisfied

What a journey! It took years of hard work to make our steelmaking operations more sustainable. In 2022, we went carbon neutral in all operations. But we´re still not satisfied - our journey continue for products with no CO2 emissions.
