Nitrosteel® FAQ’s

NitroSteel® products and chrome-plated products utilize the same base metals and would be
machined in a similar fashion. The hardened surface wear layer and light shallow case of
NitroSteel’s diffusion zone requires standard carbide tooling.

Ferritic Nitrocarburizing (FNC)

FNC produces a compound layer on the surface of the parts typically .0001”-.0015”. The compound layer is
formed by diffusing nitrogen and carbon into the surface of the steel. The hardness of this layer ranges from
HRC 58 to as high as HRC 70 depending on the steel grade being processed.
