Nitriding steels are special tempered steels that are particularly suitable for nitriding due to the alloying elements Al, Cr and Mo. These chemical elements act as nitride formers. Nitriding steels have a carbon content of C = 0.31 - 0.41%. When nitriding, the surface is treated with nitrogen. To do this, the steel is annealed in a nitrogen-emitting medium (gas / liquid). Extremely hard nitrides form, which make the surface wear-resistant. Below you 'll find steel materials which belongs to material group: "Nitriding steels"
