Nitriding steel

Livallco offers many types of nitrous steel for hardening the surface layer of the steel component.

How does nitriding work?

Nitrile steel is a specific material used to nitrate and harden the steel surface. Nitriding is a heat treatment process that increases the nitrogen content in the surface of the steel and creates a hardened surface layer. The process is reminiscent of set curing, but is carried out at lower temperatures.

There are many benefits to nitriding:

  • The steel that is nitrided has reduced dimensional changes compared with traditional carbonization
  • Nitration does not give an equally thick curing depth compared to set curing
  • Nitration can also increase the corrosion resistance of a component

Common uses for nitriding are in the treatment of small gears, crankshafts and wear parts. We can supply all types of nitrous steel – even specially adapted products – with short lead times.
