heat treatment: gas nitriding

Gas nitriding

With gas nitriding, the edge of a workpiece is either finished with nitrogen or with nitrogen and carbon (gas nitrocarburizing) in a gaseous atmosphere. To improve the tribological characteristics of the component, it can then be oxidized.

Advantages of this heat treatment

  • Improves resistance to wear and tear
  • Improves tensile strength
  • Increased compression strength
  • Improved sliding properties


  • Non- and low-alloy steels
  • Case hardening steels
  • Tool steels
  • Nitriding steels

Available plant sizes

Length 3000 mm, diameter 900 mm
