Low temperature gaseous surface hardening of stainless steel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearch


The present contribution 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 expanite “layers” on stainless steel are addressed.
