Optimal wear and corrosion protection, as well as top surface quality for a multitude of applications
Many applications subject especially the peripheral areas of components and tools to high levels of stress. These areas can be strengthened by appropriate thermochemical methods, which enable the creation of high-performance materials from low-alloy steels.
Through such surface modifications, thermochemical methods offer cost-effective ways to markedly improve base material attributes such as wear resistance, friction behaviour and resistance to corrosion. In contrast to coating, the surface is not covered, and thus retains its original geometry following treatment.
