anneal

[ə′nēl]
(engineering)
To treat a metal, alloy, or glass with heat and then cool to remove internal stresses and to make the material less brittle. Also known as temper.
(genetics)
To recombine strands of complementary deoxyribonucleic acid that were separated by heating or other means of denaturation.

anneal

To take the brittleness out of metal, plastic or certain carbon composites. Performed in the preparation of new products or in their restoration, annealing is accomplished via a heat treating process.
