Expert committee 3
Nitriding and nitrocarburizing

Objectives and tasks

  • Analysis of nitrocarburizing kinetics
  • Measurement and control during nitriding and nitrocarburizing
  • Mechanical properties of nitrided steel grades
  • Investigation of pore origin and characterization of the porous layer
  • Wear behaviour of nitrided layer
  • Basic thermodynamic analysis of the system Fe-N-C
  • Research on nitriding behaviour of metals and their alloys (for example Al, Ti, austenite)
  • Corrosion properties of nitrocarburized surface layer
  • Plasma-, gas-, low pressure- and salt bath nitrocarburizing variants

Next Meeting: Spring 2022.
