Oil quenching is a heat treatment process that involves rapidly cooling metal components in oil to achieve desired material properties. The process generally consists of three primary stages:
Neutral hardening significantly enhances the mechanical properties of metals, including strength and wear resistance.
Conducting the process in a neutral atmosphere prevents surface contamination and ensures consistency in properties.
Compared to other quenching mediums like water, oil quenching usually causes less distortion and cracking.
The combination of neutral hardening and oil quenching results in a structure with enhanced toughness and ductility.
