  • Influence of Nitriding Mechanisms on Surface Roughness of Plasma and Gas Nitrided/Nitrocarburized Gray Cast Iron

    posted on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 The differences in mechanisms of nitrogen transfer between plasma (ion) nitriding and gas nitriding have various practical consequences. For example, gas nitriding increases the surface roughness gray cast iron. Proper identification of the advantages and disadvantages of these two methods could significantly improve their use.
