What is 'anneal' πŸ§‘β€πŸ”§

I decided to write about β€œWhat is 'anneal'” after a few colleagues asked for my help in the subject. If you are still in doubt, stick with me…

So the fastest answer is…

To treat a metal, alloy, or glass with heat and then cool to remove internal stresses and to make the material less brittle.

1 : to heat and then cool (as steel or glass) usually for softening and making less brittle.

2 : to heat and then cool (double-stranded nucleic acid) in order to separate strands and induce combination at lower temperatures especially with complementary strands.

These are a few popular questions people ask:


What is the purpose of annealing aluminum...

Aluminum is commonly annealed to allow for extreme forming and drawing operations that would otherwise cause cracking or tearing in the metal. Deeply drawn parts are often specified as fully annealed, tempered or dead soft product. Annealing is also used to make materials more uniform if welding has led to residual stress in the heat affected zone.

Why is annealing used for heat treatment...

While there are many different types of heat treatment, annealing is popular because it increases ductability and reduces hardness. In this post, we’ll cover everything you need to know about the process of annealing.

Thanks for reading up to this point and I hope you have great day.

Note to self: Draft for a new post.
