Atmosphere Normalizing

In normalizing, the steel part is heated into the austenitic region followed by cooling in air. Normalizing produces a more uniform microstructure and improves strength and hardness. Benefits of annealing include increased ductility, grain refinement, better machinability, dimensional stability, and improved response to subsequent hardening heat treatment.

NATIONAL HEAT TREAT can perform normalizing in any of our five(5) atmosphere furnaces.
