Compound Layer Free Nitriding

Composition and characteristics

  • Thermo-chemical process to enrich the case of a component or work piece with nitrogen
  • Due to the low activity of nitrogen in the atmosphere only a diffusion zone is formed.
  • The formation of a white layer is suppressed.
  • Enables a clear raise of the endurance limit, by evoking internal compressive stress in the ductile case.

Fields of Application

  • Extremely stressed components
