Low temperature gaseous surface hardening of stainless steel

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The present contribtion gives an overview of some of the technological aspects of low temperature thermochemical treatment of stainless steel. Examples of low temperature gaseous nitriding, carburising and nitrocarburising of stainless steel are presented and discussed. In particular, the morphology, microstructure and characteristics of so-called expanded austenite "layers" on stainless steel are addressed.
