Quench Hardening

Recrystallization is a process by which deformed microstructure grains are replaced by a new set of undeformed grains that nucleate and grow until the original grains have been entirely consumed. Recrystallization is usually accompanied by a reduction in the strength and hardness of a material and a simultaneous increase in the ductility. Recrystallization occurs at high temperatures.
