Carbonitriding

Carbonitriding produces a shallower case and is well suited for plain, low-carbon steels.

What is Carbonitriding?

Carbonitriding is a modified form of gas carburizing in which ammonia is added to the carburizing atmosphere. Thus, both carbon and the nitrogen from the ammonia are diffused into the steel simultaneously. The diffusion of carbon results in a high carbon surface while the nitrogen provides extra hardness. 

  • Improves fatigue resistance
  • High surface hardness and tough core with low cost material
  • Improves wear resistance
