"Quench" in context

Quenching is the process of rapidly cooling a hot object to dramatically reduce its temperature. It is also widely used to strengthen and harden metals, alloys, and other materials. Quenching is done to stop or reverse the effects of annealing, which is when materials have been heated to soften them. By cooling it quickly and evenly, the liquid inside the material is heated rapidly and transforms to solid or semi-solid state. This provides a much stronger and harder object than annealing it. In addition, quenching can also increase the wear resistance and life of the material.
