Steel Hardening and Tempering Colour Guide
The Site provides a colour swatch of steel hardening and tempering temperatures for general guidance based upon typical steel colours at these temperatures that may be different for a particular grade or specification. For an accurate temperature reading a calibrated temperature probe should be used to determine actual steel temperature.
It should be noted that your monitor or printer may not accurately reproduce the colours on screen and we recommend a West Yorkshire Steel printed colour swatch is used that provides more accurate colour reproduction. A colour swatch is normally supplied with each steel consignment ordered and provides a general guide to steel temperatures that should be used with a more accurate temperature sensor.
West Yorkshire Steel from time to time offer a number of promotional items while stocks last, that may be changed or removed without prior notice. When stocks are not available the promotion item is removed from the Site and if the User places an order and claims a promotional item before it is removed from the Site an alternative item will be supplied as a replacement.
