Possibilities of Preparing Tools Working in Conditions of Abrasion Wear with the Modification of the Tool Surfaces by Nitridation
The proposed paper deals about the heat treatment of two types of chromium tool steels that are assigned to work in specific conditions of abrasion wear. The materials are heat treated to achieve high hardness for higher abrasion wear resistance. An additional increase of the materials abrasion wear resistance can be achieved by applying nitridation with diffusion annealing of the material surface. The paper deals about the influence of the material purity, his chemical composition on the process of diffusion, the quality of the nitrided layer of a vacuum smelted steel Bӧhler W400 VMR and a chromium steel X210Cr12.
