The increasing demand for high entropy alloys and the need to develop high-strength steels for structural applications has led to the various applications of heat treatment in the metallurgical field. However, numerous mechanical integrities of heat treatment must be satisfied to ensure that the desired property is not only obtained but also achieved sustainably even while the material is under the application in a degraded environment. Thus, the study did an extensive review of the different heat treatment methods and their benefits. The study discussed the purpose of heat treatment, types of heat treatment, and their effect on the corrosion behaviour of the substrate. This provides potential information on the basics of heat treatment to further understand its impact on the corrosion performance of engineering materials.
