UltraGlow® Ion Nitriding


Not witnessing the lubricity results you had estimated on your latest part revision? Sounds like you need to investigate AHT's UltraGlow® processes. UltraGlow® is a proven surface hardening process that can help with many of your part problems.

AHT's UltraGlow® case hardening process has been in place for over 30 years and has seen its customer base reap rich rewards as a result of improved product quality. UltraGlow® nitriding is the ultimate surface treatment for low-to-high carbon steels, cast irons, stainless steels, powdered metals and any variation of tool steels.

Enhance Fatigue Strength and Save Money!

Due to increased compressive stresses at the part surface, fatigue strength is improved five to ten times its typical "non-treated" life, dependent on the material and part design. Studies have shown fatigue strength is improved without distortion as compared to other surface treatments, saving customers $$$ on fewer operations.

Improve Corrosion Resistance

UltraGlow's® case hardening process can create a controlled white layer or compound zone which will improve a parts susceptibility to corrode or rust. This nitrogen enriched layer helps combat the elements and keep your parts looking fresh.

Excellent Abrasion Resistance

With UltraGlow®, surface lubricity can be enhanced tenfold. UltraGlow® nitriding will improve the overall wear and tear of moving parts within another assembly. Such results can save customers significant $$$ and time can be spent elsewhere.

Be Lean and Green

UltraGlow® is an environmentally-friendly application. No toxic salts or gases are used within the manufacturing process. Therefore, it's a safe and clean process that will be around for a lifetime.

Adds to Abrasive Wear or Adhesion Wear

A deeper compound zone (white layer) can be achieved through UltraGlow® Gas Nitriding, whereas a shallow compound zone (white layer) can be achieved through UltraGlow® Ion Nitriding.
