Water Quench

The rapid cooling of a workpiece in water to obtain certain material properties, increasing its hardness. This is typically used for low alloy steel grades for the steel to achieve maximum hardness. This process can lead to cracking or some distortions, in which case, air or oil quenching would be used instead.
