Ferritic Nitrocarburizing

DESCRIPTION

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:

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Increase of superficial hardness;
  • Improved resistance to wear and tear;
  • Improved endurance
  • Less Friction;
  • Moderate resistance to corrosion.

DEPTH

From 0.10 to 0.60 mm (class NtE1 – NtE5 – UNI 10931)

APPEARANCE

Thanks to gaseous nitriding, the product appears neat and in a shade of opaque light grey.

STEELS AFFECTED

  • Nitriding steels;
  • Steel used for tools;
  • Carbon Steels;
  • Tempering Steels;
  • Low carbon steels;
  • Cast-steels
