Chapter 3: How Does the Nitriding Process Work?
Several process parameters must be considered to ensure success in achieving desired metallurgical properties and to minimize distortion. This chapter provides a detailed discussion on the liberation of nitrogen, dissociation of the gas at the selected nitriding temperature, why ammonia is used, distortion, and preheat treatment.
