Minimal Distortion, Bright Results

Certain metal alloys may be strengthened by a relatively low temperature process called precipitation age hardening. As in annealing, brazing, and stress relieving, vacuum age hardening may assure the parts remain bright at the outset. Precise temperature control is paramount in vacuum age hardening and many times Nadcap accreditation and ITAR registration are requirements.
