Bluing

Subjecting the scale-free surface of a ferrous alloy to the action of air, stream or other agents at a suitable temperature, thus forming a thin blue film of oxide and improving the appearance and resistance to corrosion. NOTE: This term is ordinarily applied to sheet, strip or finished parts. It is used also to denote the heating of springs after fabrication in order to improve their properties.
