Tempering is a heat treatment technique for metals, alloys and glass. In steels, tempering is done to ""toughen"" the metal by transforming brittle martensite or bainite into a combination of ferrite and cementite or sometimes Tempered martensite. Precipitation hardening alloys, like many grades of aluminum and superalloys, are tempered to precipitate intermetallic particles which strengthen the metal.
