Plasma nitriding

Plasma nitriding

Gentle treatment due to lower temperature

Plasma nitriding is a process which makes use of the properties of the gas plasma, of an ionized gas.

The advantage is that a low process temperature of about – or under – 500° C is well suited for plasma nitriding and there is thus no drop in the core hardness of hardened steel. Another special feature is that in plasma nitriding even high-porosity sintered steels as well as cast iron and high-alloy tool steels can be treated.

Very often, this method is used before coating with PVD or CVD, since in plasma nitriding the possibility of forming a diffusion layer without compound layer can be produced.


Loyal HMW partners know that we use the Christmas holidays every year to carry out maintenance and repair work.
We will therefore be closed again this year from 23.12.2023 to 01.01.2024.

Neither collections nor deliveries are possible during this period.
Last delivery: 22.12.2023

We will be back for you on 02.01.2024.
