Chemicothermal Treatment


  1. 1.

    High hardness and sufficient case depth are produced on martensitic stainless steels by carburizing at 950–1000°C. Fine martensite and evenly distributed dispersed carbides are formed in the case.

  2. 2.

    Carburizing above 1000°C results in an austenite zone in the diffusion coating with a coarse carbide network in the grain boundaries, leading to cracks during cooling from carburizing temperature and subsequent quenching.
