Accurate Ion Technologies has developed ECO-GLO™ - an ion-plasma nitriding treatment designed to produce a uniform-diffused, nitrogen-enriched, high-hardness case with anti-galling and anti-seizing properties. Your ECO-GLO™ treated components will exhibit dimensional stability with reliable and repeatable surface morphology.

The ECO-GLO™ treatment is well-suited for the following materials:

• Alloy Steels Containing (Cr, Al, Mo, V, W, Ti)
• Nitriding Steels
• Medium Carbon Chrome Steels
• Chrome, Chrome-Vanadium Steels
• Stainless Steels (300, 400, PH)
• Tool Steels

Applications that benefit from Ion-Plasma Nitriding include:

• Tooling for Die Casting, Forging and Extrusions
• Plastic Molds
• Metal Working
• Composite Tooling
• Power Transmission Components
• High-Performance Engine Components
• Hydraulic System Hardware
• Bearings
• Gears
• Powdered Metal Components

Ion-Plasma Nitriding is an extension of the gas nitriding process. Using ion-plasma physics in nitriding allows for precise control of the process and produces surface-treated components with a distinctive and repeatable thermo-chemical diffused case. The vacuum process combines convection heating with ion “glow discharge” to precisely heat the surface of your components and allow for the absorption of the available atomic nitrogen controlled by mass flow. This nitride potential (Kn) control allows for the development of repeatable microstructure morphology of gamma prime and epsilon iron nitrides, as well as for control of the compound zone thickness (white layer).

The features and benefits of the process include:
