NitroSteel Products

NitroSteel Logo

In our Pleasant Prairie, WI facility, we specialize in ferritic nitrocarburizing.

  • Ferritic nitrocarburizing involves diffusion of nitrogen and carbon into the surface of ferritic material at subcritical temperatures.
  • NitroSteel is the “green” alternative to chrome plating. This process leaves no hazardous by-product in our facility or our customers’ operations.
  • We can handle bars that are 12’ to 24’ in length. We can also process piece parts.
  • The end result produces product that have:
    –Superior corrosion resistance
    –Improved wear resistance
    –Better lubrication retention
    –Dent resistance without induction hardening
    –No surface pitting or flaking
    –Environmentally friendly
    –Increased service
  • In addition, we also offer rough and finish grinding along with bright polishing of bar stock.
