Nitrocarburizing

Composition and characteristics

  • Thermo-chemical process to enrich the case of a component or work piece with nitrogen and carbon
  • White layer (10 – 20 µm)
  • Diffusion zone (0,1 – 1 mm)
  • Extremely high resistance against abrasion
  • Most resistant to adhesion

Fields of Application

  • corrosively and abrasively stressed components

Typical Applications

  • eccentric shafts
  • pellet slide bars
  • piston rods
  • disk carriers
  • camshafts
  • con-rods
  • sintered parts
  • synchronizing rings
  • synchronizer disks
  • supporting tubes
