Quenched and tempered steels are steels which, due to their chemical composition, are suitable for the heat treatment of tempering in order to achieve higher strengths with good toughness. They usually have a carbon content of C = 0.25 - 0.60%. Tempering is a two-stage heat treatment in which the steel is first heated to a high temperature and then quickly cooled (quenched). Due to the rapid cooling, the structure is distorted, resulting in greater strength. The steel is then slightly warmed up again (tempered), reducing the strength somewhat to improve the toughness.
