Nitriding steels are steel obtained by the nitriding method, which is the process of hardening the steel surface. This process enables the formation of nitrogen compounds through the diffusion of nitrogen atoms onto the surface of the steel. These compounds form a hardening layer on the surface of the steel and make it harder and more durable.
The nitriding process is the most common among surface hardening processes and can be carried out at lower temperatures than traditional hardening methods. This process can provide properties such as low ductility, high hardness and high resistance on the surface of the steel and improve the surface quality of the steel.
WHERE ARE NITRATION STEELS USED?
Nitriding steels are preferred for parts operating under high friction and load, especially due to their properties such as high wear resistance, high fatigue strength and surface hardness. It is used in many industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense industry, energy, heavy industry and machine building.
