(ˈnaɪtraɪdɪŋ)
n
(Metallurgy) a type of case-hardening in which steel is heated for long periods in ammonia vapour so that nitrogen produced by dissociation on the surface enters the steel

changed the microstructure and performance of titanium alloy by nitriding [14].
Nitriding is used on motorsport wear parts to create fatigue resistance.
The surface technology includes plasma nitriding and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).
All the metalwork on the M 98 Magnum has been treated with plasma nitriding for maximum wear resistance, and aside from providing excellent defense against corrosion, it gives the metal a deep, beautiful shine.
Standard technologies like nitriding, nitrocarburizing or boriding are not an option as they would deteriorate the excellent corrosion resistance.
Nitriding of Lightweight High Manganese and Aluminum Steels (15-036) Laura Bartlett, Sabra Serino, Texas State University
The substrate material was a high-strength low-alloy Cr-Al-Mo nitriding steel, which was annealed (920[degrees]C, 25 min, air), quenched (930[degrees]C, 25 min, oil), and tempered (650[degrees]C, 25 min, air), prior to micropulse plasma nitriding (cleaning: 510[degrees]C, 30 min; nitriding: 515[degrees]C, 8 h) performed in a protective argon atmosphere.
Part three discusses the specific processes of nitriding, carburizing, and nitrocarburizing, with part four extending these to low temperature processes.
A unique set of steel products properties is achieved due to nitriding, which consists in saturation of steel boundary layer with nitrogen when heated in a suitable environment from 500 to 1200[degrees]C.
Kim et al [15] studied the nitrogen behavior in a DC plasma nitriding process.
