Plasma Nitriding

Composition and characteristics

  • Thermo-chemical process to enrich the case of a component or work piece with nitrogen
  • Due to the high amount of nitrogen in the atmosphere a diffusion zone as well as a  white-layer or precipitation zone are formed.
  • White layer (usually up to 15 µm depth)
  • Diffusion layer (up to 0.8 mm depth (material dependent))
  • High wear resistance

Fields of Application

  • mechanically extremely stressed components
