In plasma nitriding, the nitrogen is introduced into a vacuum chamber and ionized using an electric field (glow discharge). It is then accelerated in the direction of the tool surface and absorbed.


Areas of application/use

  • Automotive industry
  • Medical technology
  • Aerospace industry
  • Medical technology
  • Textile industry
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Tool making


Material groups

All steel qualities can be nitrided.

We perform the following plasma nitriding heat treatments

  • Plasma nitriding
  • Plasma nitrocarburizing
  • Improx® oxidizing (oxidizing in plasma)
  • Combination of plasma nitriding or nitrocarburizing with oxidizing


The advantages

  • A specific coating structure is possible (e.g. nitriding without the compound layer)
  • An environmentally friendly, non-toxic process
  • Partial nitriding is possible
