Dorsetware offers professional de-embrittlement and metal hardening services for annealing in Poole, Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Devon, and the M3 corridor.
Hydrogen de-embrittlement is an important metal hardening process. Embrittlement is what happens when various metals become brittle and fracture following exposure to hydrogen. Hydrogen embrittlement is often the result of the unintentional introduction of hydrogen into susceptible metals during forming or finishing operations and it consequently increases cracking in the material. The hydrogen de-embrittlement process should be carried out as soon as possible after electroplating.
De-embrittlement is essential for removing hydrogen. Dorsetware offers a range of temperatures and times suitable for your de-embrittlement requirements and the scale of operation that you need.
