Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / metal treatments
Spanish term or phrase: bonificado
To do with mechanical engineering, the text mentions that a metal component may be: "bonificado, cementado o rectificado". The three are thermic or superficial metal treatments. I thought it was "quenched and tempered, case-hardened or ground", but the client says quenched and tempered would be "templado y revenido". I would really appreciate it if anyone knows the subject.

Notes to answerer
Asker: You probably got my message - I went for hardened and tempered, as I had to make a distinction with 'plain' tempered. And Eurodicautom says hardened and tempered. Thank you for your contribution.
