Heat treating processes that are applied to copper and copper alloys include: Homogenizing; Annealing; Stress relieving; Solution treating; Precipitation (age) hardening; Quench hardening and tempering. Each of these will be described below along with heat treating equipment and protective atmospheres and heat treating practices for specific copper alloys including beryllium coppers, copper-chromium alloys, copper-zirconium alloys, miscellaneous precipitation-hardening alloys, spinodal-hardening alloys, and aluminum bronzes. Additional information on heat treating principles can be found in the article "Physical Metallurgy: Heat Treatment, Structure, and Properties" in this Handbook.
