What is Carburizing?

During processing, carbon is diffused into the surface of the parts at elevated temperatures. Hardening occurs to this "carburized case" by quenching in oil from above the transformation range resulting in a hard surface for wear resistance and a soft core for ductility.

Carburizing Benefits

  • Hard and high wear resistance surface
  • Deep case depth potential
  • Improves durability
  • 55+ HRC

Typical Materials used for Carburizing

  • Low Carbon Alloy Steels (4120, 4820, 8620, 9310, etc)

  • Low Carbon Steels (1018, 1117, etc)
