Gas Nitro-Carburising process

Nitrocarburising differs from Nitriding simply by the addition of the element Carbon (from a suitable carbon containing gas such as Endogas) during the process. The compound layer formed is generally thicker, more corrosion resistant and often takes the form of Epsilon Iron Nitride. 
Nitrocarburising is more commonly applied to low allow steels, mild steels and cast irons, but can equally be applied to any steel which is thermally stable at the treatment temperatures. 

One special Nitrocarburising treatment 
Aalberts Surface Technologies Ltd. provide is the Nitrotec┬« process from its site in Birmingham. This is a Nitrocarburising plus oxidation treatment to provide superb surface properties to medium carbon steels. Detailed information on Nitrotec┬« Is found under the treatments section.
