P.K. Forge provides high quality metal protection services. Our experienced local staff can provide advice on design for galvanizing, scheduling and transport as well as technical information on galvanized coating characteristics and performance.

Heat Treatment is the controlled heating and cooling of metals to alter their physical and mechanical properties without changing the product shape. Heat treatment is sometimes done inadvertently due to manufacturing processes that either heat or cool the metal such as welding or forming.

P.K. Forge's heat treatments provide the following:
Softening: Softening is done to reduce strength or hardness, remove residual stresses, improve toughnesss, restore ductility, refine grain size or change the electromagnetic properties of the steel.
Hardening: Hardening of steels is done to increase the strength and wear properties.
Material Modification: These processes modify the behavior of the steels in a beneficial manner to maximize service life, e.g., stress relieving, or strength properties, e.g., cryogenic treatment, or some other desirable properties, e.g., spring aging.
