PROCESS: Gas nitriding is a surface hardening process, where nitrogen is added to the surface of steel parts using dissociated ammonia as the source. Gas nitriding develops a very hard case in a component at relatively low temperature, without quenching.
The process temperatures are below the transformation temperature of alloy steels. This means that with proper manufacturing techniques there are no (or very small) distorsions.
TREATMENT DEPTH: 3 tenths of a millimiter
