How We Bring the Heat


May 2016

Annealing_PicklingBrighton Tru-Edge utilizes annealing when working with both ferrous and nonferrous metals.

For ferrous materials: annealing heats the material to a temperature above the critical temperature, holds it there for a specific time, and then cools it at a controlled rate to soften or change other properties of the metal. For nonferrous materials: annealing primarily removes part or all of the effects of cold working.

At Brighton Tru-Edge, we primarily use five types of annealing processes to make materials more workable and usable:

The Brighton Tru-Edge team works with a wide variety of metals such as carbon steels, stainless steels and specialty alloys, and you can review all our available metals here. Our onsite oversized annealing pool allows us to handle even large-scale projects with ease and convenience.
