Work Hardening

Is the strengthening of a metal or polymer by plastic deformation at low temperatures. Many non-brittle metals with a reasonably high melting point can be strengthened using this method.  Work hardened steels are usually low in carbon, this method is primarily used when narrow dimensional tolerances and good surface properties are required.
