Definitions for "Annealed"
the process of heating a metal to make it less brittle
A fastener is considered in the annealed state when it has been heated and cooled to make it soft-that is, free of hardness caused by working or previous heat treatment.
Heating above the critical or re-crystallization temperature, then controlled cooling of metal, glass, or other materials to eliminate the effects of cold-working, relieve internal stresses, or improve strength, ductility, or other properties.
