Ferritic nitrocarburizing is a thermochemical treatment through which the superficial layer of a steel is enriched with nitrogen and carbon. Such process creates and an enforced layer that increases the hardness of the superficial layer, offering the following characteristics to the object:
- Increase of superficial hardness;
- Improved resistance to wear and tear;
- Improved endurance
- Less Friction;
- Moderate resistance to corrosion.
From 0.10 to 0.60 mm (class NtE1 – NtE5 – UNI 10931)
Thanks to gaseous nitriding, the product appears neat and in a shade of opaque light grey.
- Nitriding steels;
- Steel used for tools;
- Carbon Steels;
- Tempering Steels;
- Low carbon steels;
