Quenched & Tempered Steel

BlueScope Plate Supplies provide quality quenched and tempered steel that has been manufactured to the highest quality standards.

In the tempering and quenching process, the steel becomes less brittle and more ductile without sacrificing strength.  The process produces hard, tough steel that is more weldable and ductile than other steel products.

At BlueScope Plate Supplies, we sell a wide range of quenched & tempered steel, and take pride in our ability to provide products that meet the specific manufacturing requirements of our clients.


Why Choose Quenched & Tempered Steel?

Quenching and tempering is a tightly controlled process that strengthens and hardens steel.  Once the material has been quenched to its hardest state, the tempering process is applied to achieve greater toughness and ductility.  The result is a hard, tough steel that is also weldable and ductile.

As quenched and tempered steel is tough, it has a stronger resistance to wear and abrasion, which makes it ideal for use in machinery and structures where greater abrasion resistance and higher yield strength are necessary.

Quenched and tempered steel is commonly used in a variety of industries such as mining, quarrying, earthmoving and construction.  It can often be found in the following:

  • Storage tanks
  • Bridges and high-rise buildings
  • Excavator and loader buckets
  • Deflector plates
  • Gear wheels
  • Low Loader Trailers
