Build your knowledge with our whitepaper

How does plasma nitriding work exactly, and what are the benefits? With our new whitepaper, you will get a technically in-depth but easily understandable introduction to nitriding, one of the world’s most widespread thermo-mechanical diffusion processes. You will learn how the surface properties of functional surfaces can be selectively modified, so the properties of the surface and the bulk material can be optimized separately using this technology.

Since its introduction in 1923, nitriding has increased the resistance of the surface layer of tools to abrasive wear and thermo-mechanical fatigue. Duplex PVD coatings (plasma nitriding followed by one of our premium PVD or PACVD coatings) help tools to withstand the high mechanical stresses and cyclic loading of metal forming operations such as stamping, trimming and blanking, and to the thermal loading in hot forging and high-pressure die casting.



Are duplex coatings right for your application? Read the whitepaper to find out!

The whitepaper provides more than technical background information. The customer examples and laboratory results can give you initial insights into whether your forming tool and steel is suitable for plasma nitriding. You will also find out whether your application might require in-situ plasma nitriding (for nitriding hardness depths below 50 μm) or our two-stage plasma nitriding process (for nitriding hardness depths above 50 μm).
