Comparison of Heat Treatment processes
Process Comparison - Nitrotec (R) vs The Rest
    Process Comparisons



    The Nitrotec family of treatments is the only nitrocarburising plus oxidation process capable of imparting to components all the beneficial properties of: 

    • Wear Resistance
    • Indentation Resistance
    • Yeild Strength
    • Fatigue Strength
    • Corrosion Resistance
    • Bearing Characteristics
    • Surface Finish
    • Aesthetic Finish

    This is due to the uniqueness of oxidising at the same temperature as the nitrocarburising, and then quenching.


    Advantages Over Chrome Plating
     
    Several disadvantages of chrome plating are its high fatigue life debit, marginal corrosion resistance due to microcracking, high-power consumption, nonuniform coverage, poor penetration into holes and tube bores, and the evolution of hydrogen in the process. As a result of the hydrogen evolution, misting occurs that leads to high air emission rates and associated adverse heallh, safety, and environmental risks.

    Many of our motor industry clients have taken this path, especially for heavy duty components.
