Heat Treatments


Heat treatment of alloys alters the performance characteristics of the material.

Are you looking for aerospace or commercial heat treatments?

Heat treatment alters the microstructure of the material. The idea behind heat treatment is that the alloy or metal is heated and then cooled to change the metal's properties or shape. Cooling helps to harden the material, and the process is designed to change the structure of the metal itself. For some products, this can mean increasing surface hardness, improving temperature resistance and even improving the actual strength of the alloy.


All heat treatment processing meets the standards set out by either the customer or National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (NADCAP) or BS EN 9100. As a global leader in metal heat treatment, Smiths Advanced Metals offers an extensive range of heat treatments for aluminium, stainless steel, steel alloys or titanium grades. Our facilities process a range of component sizes with accurate, reliable results.
