Plasma Nitro-carburizing is a Plasma Nitriding process designed to aid cast steel and sintered parts with low starting hardness achieve surface hardness that are typically outside of the standard Plasma Nitriding process. Plasma Nitro-carburizing is often chosen as an alternative to Ferritic Nitro-carburizing for components that need portions of the part surface to stay intact (not Nitrided). Machinal masking prevents selected par surfaces to stay intact, while the rest of the part surface is Plasma Nitro-carburized for corrosion and wear resistance.
Materials Suited for Plasma Nitro-carburizing:
- Alloy Steels that hot rolled or cold roller: 4140, 4340, 4150, P20
- Low & Medium Carbon Steels: 1010, 1018, 1045,
- Low Alloy Steels: 5120, 9310, 8620
- Cast Ion and Cast Steels
- Sintered parts
