Ferritic Nitrocarburizing

Ferritic nitrocarburizing or less commonly known as Ferritic nitrocarburising, in British English, is an array of case hardening operations that diffuse nitrogen and also carbon into ferrous metals at sub-critical conditions. The processing heat range ranges from 525°C to help 625°C, but usually occurs from 565 °C (1,049 °F). The process is used to improve three main surface integrity aspects: scuffing resistance, fatigue properties and corrosion resistance.
