  • Thermal shock resistance

    Thermal shock resistance describes the resistance of a material or workpieces to quick, shock-like temperature changes. Mechanical tensions result since the heat can be transferred more quickly at the surface of a workpiece than inside of it. If the resulting tension exceeds a critical value, the material will take damage.
