Troubleshooting Nitriding Process Problems – Part 1

The nitriding process is perhaps one of the most misunderstood thermo-chemical surface treatment processes that are practiced today. So the process is not as old as, for example carburising. However, it is perhaps (as far as chemistry is concerned) one of the most simple of all of the thermo-chemical surface treatments are concerned. Below are […]

Process and Applications of Black Oxide

The process of forming black iron oxide to ferrous metals and other types of materials is often called black oxide. The black oxide process is a chemical conversion coating for ferrous materials, stainless steel, copper and copper-based alloys, zinc, powdered metals, and silver solder. This process is done to add corrosion resistance, enhance appearance, and […]
