Annealing is a common term used for metal heat treating. However, the term is sometimes used incorrectly to refer to different annealing processes and even for heat treatments that are not annealing processes, creating confusion. For the heat treatment used with cold-worked metal to reduce its strength and increase its ductility, the most accurate and least confusing term to use is recrystallization anneal.

In this Metal Conversations episode, Michael Pfeifer discusses the recrystallization anneal process used with cold-worked metal and sources of confusion when using the term 'anneal'.
