Gas NitroCarburizing Services

Nitrocarburizing is a process for surface hardening of materials. As a result of thermochemical diffusion, the surface layer of the material is enriched with nitrogen and carbon. In contrast to this is nitriding, a process in which only nitrogen is deposited in the surface layer.

Nitrocarburizing is only used on ferrous alloys. They improve surface properties of metal components and tools such as scuff and corrosion resistance, and increase the fatigue strength. Nitriding is a lengthy process and, depending on the case depth requirements,
