UltraGlow® Gas Nitriding

Seeing corrosion earlier than expected on your low-carbon steels? Sounds like you need to investigate AHT's UltraGlow® Gas Nitriding process.

UltraGlow® Gas Nitriding is a case-hardening process whereby nitrogen is diffused into the surface of a solid ferrous alloy by holding the metal at a suitable temperature in contact with a nitrogenous gas, usually ammonia.
