Its Classical heat treatment is the process of controlled heating and cooling of metals to obtain the desired mechanical, chemical, and metallurgical properties during the manufacturing of a product and its specialist technologies offer a selection of highly differentiated, early-stage processes with high margins, significant market opportunities, and good growth prospects, such as Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) Services, Surface Technology, HIP PF inc. Powdermet, Specialty Stainless Steel (S³P) Processes, Low-Pressure Carburising (LPC), and Corr-I-Dur (CiD). The Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) Services Improves component integrity and strength by application of extreme pressure and heat. The Surface Technology enhances component life using ceramic and ceramic/ metal coatings. The HIP PF inc. Powdermet manufacture often complex components by combining with HIP. The Specialty Stainless Steel (S³P) Processes improve the strength, hardness, and wear resistance of stainless steels. The Low-Pressure Carburising (LPC) Obtains a hardened surface and a tough core under vacuum using a cleaner process than atmospheric carburising, providing improved wear resistance and fatigue life with less distortion and the Corr-I-Dur (CiD) improves corrosion resistance and wear properties, and is primarily used as an environmentally friendly substitute for hard chrome.
