Materials



Gas nitriding can be applied to unalloyed steels and irons to produce a corrosion- and wear-resistant nitride layer. In alloy steels that contain nitride-forming alloy elements (Cr, Mn, Mo, V, W, Al, Ti) a deeper diffusion layer develops. Nitriding materials include a number of steel types:
  • Carbon steels
  • Hardenable alloy steels
  • Special nitriding steels such as Nitralloy
  • High alloy steels: tool steels, heat-resistant steels (e.g. valve steels) etc.
  • Stainless steels (ferritic, martensitic, austenitic, PH grades)
  • Cast iron (grey or nodular)
