Cold Working

Causing changes to the shape and structure of a metal through production processes such as rolling, hammering, forming, stamping or stretching at ambient temperature. Since the work is being done below the recrystallization temperature of the metal, there is a limit to the amount of cold work that can be done before the metal becomes brittle.
