Engineered Surfaces for the Transport Industries 2001-01-3379

Low temperature surface treatments lie between carbonitriding and nitriding in terms of both process temperature and composition of the resultant surface layers. They all produce a compound surface layer that is scuff and corrosion resistant, supported by a carbon/nitrogen diffusion zone that improves wear and fatigue life. They tend to be grouped under the general term nitrocarburising but in reality they can vary considerably in the properties induced and in their areas of application. The diverse surface properties produced find applications throughout the transport industry and elsewhere.
