Heat Treatment

Donhad’s Heat Treatment facilities cover internal manufacturing process and also have excess capacity for external works and contracts. Our technical services laboratory complements our heat treatment plant, enabling the testing of material properties on site to ensure compliance before despatch.

Annealing is the process of “softening” steel to make it more ductile and workable. The heat treatment consists of raising the temperature of the steel above the critical temperature and maintaining it until an Austenite or Austenite-Cementite microstructure is...

Case Hardening

Case Hardening (also known as surface hardening) is the process of hardening the surface of an alloy or mild steel whilst preserving an untreated interior. This produces a wear resistant surface while allowing for a soft-ductile core. Donhad utilises...

Stress Relieving

During manufacturing processes, such as machining, cold rolling, and welding, internal stress can form which can be detrimental to the life of the steel component. Stress relieving is the relatively simple process of removing these internal stresses by heating...


A process of annealing, normalising involves heating the steel above the critical temperature and then cooling. The cooling regime for normalising is undertaken in standing air, and therefore cooled at a faster rate to full annealing. Although this is...
