Dictionary: Q



Quenching is a process for heat treating a metal to change its hardness.  This process involves heating the metal to a high temperature and then dipping it in a liquid bath of oil or water to cool it rapidly.  Quenching is often used to increase the hardness of cast metals, and can be used to harden jewelry made with jewelry wire and beads.
