Looking for a one off small quantity of steel, we can produce in 20-25Kg coils.

Hardening and tempering is a thermal process that strenghtens steel through controlled heating and cooling.  After hardening, the wire is reheated or “tempered” back to remove brittleness and relieve internal stresses.  Tempering increases the toughness and ductility of the wire.

Hardened and tempered wire is commonly used in a wide variety of spring making applications.

* Oil tempered Wire

Oil Tempered Wire is a steel wire with superior elasticity and ductility obtained by Oil-Quenching and Tempering process.  OT wire has excellent resistance against heat, fatigue and deformation.  OT wire’s main applications are springs for repeated (cyclic) dynamic loads, including engine value spring.
