Abstract

Low temperature plasma nitriding of 17-4 PH martensitic and A286 austenitic precipitation hardening stainless steels has been investigated over a wide range of treatment temperatures and times. Experimental results have shown that the microstructural characteristics and properties are highly process condition dependent and there exits the possibility to provide considerable improvement in wear resistance without compromising corrosion resistance properties.
