Forging Tools

Forging tools after UltraGlow® Ion Nitriding can have a very high hardness if required (i.e. up to 70 HRC equivalent).

ForgingHeader

Forging materials contain an elevated amount of nitride forming elements such as chromium, vanadium, and molybdenum. These types of nitrides have excellent thermal stability up to 1100°F. They increase hardness and abrasion resistance of the tool after nitriding without significantly reducing its impact properties. Such tools after UltraGlow® Ion Nitriding can have a very high hardness if required (i.e. up to 70 HRC equivalent) as shown in Figure 1.
