Austenitic Stainless Steel Grades. Austenitic stainless steels are classified in the and series, with 16% to 30% chromium and 2% to 20% nickel for enhanced surface quality, formability, increased corrosion and wear resistance. Austenitic stainless steels are non-hardenable by heat treating.

Nitriding is a general term for all processes based on the addition of nitrogen to the surface of steel. When carbon is added along with the nitrogen, the process is called nitrocarburizing. This article provides a detailed discussion on the functional and structural properties of nitrided layers. A novel combination of plasma nitriding and solution treatment was primarily developed for preparing deep nitriding austenitic stainless steel. Plasma nitriding was used to get high concentration of nitrogen in the surface layer of austenitic stainless steel at higher rate, and solution treatment was used to fully decompose the chromium nitrides formed during plasma nitriding and let nitrogen atoms dissolve into the matrix, and thus possible to get deep nitriding austenitic stainless steel.

A hard nitrided layer is formed on austenitic stainless steel by holding the austenitic stainless steel in a heated condition under a fluorine- or fluoride-containing atmosphere and then nitriding it so that a close uniform nitriding layer can be formed, resulting the remarkable improvement in the surface hardness of the above-mentioned austenitic stainless by: Abstract: A series of plasma nitriding experiments has been conducted on AISI L austenitic stainless steel samples at temperatures ranging from degC to degC using continuous dc glow discharge plasma in an N 2-H 2 gas mixture. H 2 percentages in the gas mixture were changed from 0% to 50% relative to the total gas pressure, which is ranging from 3 to 9 torr in the nitriding reactor.

The article also outlines the need to promote the formation of an effective protective passive layer in stainless steels. It discusses hardness, fatigue and fretting properties, tribological properties, wear resistance, and corrosion-wear process of the S-phase layer.

The article describes two thermochemical nitriding techniques of stainless steels: plasma-assisted nitriding techniques and non-plasma assisted nitriding. An austenitic stainless steel type AISI was selected for plasma nitriding at low er T H than K. T able 2 summarizes the experimental results in the literature.

Although detail information is. Considering low-temperature plasma-assisted nitriding and carburizing of stainless steels, it can be affirmed that the treatment of austenitic stainless steels was extensively studied. On the other hand, studies for martensitic stainless steels have been less considered, and.

The influence of low temperature (~ °C) plasma nitriding on the crystallographic texture Cited by: This layer consists of Stainless Steel which is supersaturated with Nitrogen and / or Carbon at the surface. The saturation creates high internal stresses in the layer and the hardness is increased significantly, without reducing the corrosion resistance.

In fact the corrosion resistance. Nitrogen alloyed in austenitic stainless steels improves austenite stability, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Steels supersaturated with nitrogen (“super-nitrogen steels”) have been investigated, which rival the latest ferritic steels in strength but have potentially greater toughness.

strong nitride formers on low temperature nitriding of (austenitic) stainless steel. To the authors’ knowledge only one paper can be found about low temperature nitriding of A alloy [2]. In this work the material was aged prior to plasma nitriding which means that the alloying elements, namely Ti and Al, were bound as γ’-Ni.

Activated gas nitriding of PH stainless steel. Austenitic stainless steels can be applied with several types of coatings through thermochemical methods like ion nitriding, Kolsterisation, sol-gel process, thermal spraying and physical vapour deposition for corrosion protection purposes.

A austenitic stainless steel was nitrided in salt bath at °C for different time, and the effects of nitriding time on microstructure and properties of the nitrided layers were investigated.

Gas nitriding of austenitic steel is only possible if the passive oxide layer is removed. Therefore, surface activation forms an important part of the treatment.

Nitriding is as an effective technique applied for many years to improve the surface hardness and wear resistance of low carbon and tool steels [1].

In the case of stainless steels, increase of surface hardness and wear resistance accompany by a drop in corrosion resistance due to the precipitation of CrN.

In this respect, many attempts have been made to modify the surfaces of austenitic. Highlights It is feasible to simultaneously chromise and nitride the surface of austenitic stainless steels by pack cementation process.
