NITRIDING STEELS

Nitriding steels are the group that gives the best response to nitration heat treatment. They are steels with a nitration depth of up to 0.10mm, which is difficult to reach even to 0.04mm in other groups. Since nitration is a process that does not pose a problem in terms of dimensional stability, it is mostly preferred in parts with dimensional accuracy and in tools that will not be chipped after heat treatment.
