Ion-Plasma Nitriding Applications
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).
