Carburizing, known as a kind of “thermochemical treatment”, is one of the oldest surface hardening processes; It is based on the application of carbon in the solid, liquid or gaseous medium to the surface of steel material with low carbon content.

Carburizing Applications Detail

After the carburizing process, the material is usually hardened by giving water in oil.

After all; the surface of the part is hard and abrasion resistant, while the core part is soft to the surface but tough; that is, a material resistant to impact is obtained.

The carbon impregnation process occurs as a result of gas-metal reaction by heating the steel part to austenitase temperature in a CO-containing medium. Usually a temperature between 850 and 950 ° C is used, this temperature is called “cementation temperature’..

Carburizing is generally applied to unalloyed or low alloyed steels with a composition of less than 0.2% carbon. These steels are called “cementation steels..

Carburizing steels; gears, shafts, piston pins, valves, chain links, sprockets, discs, roller bearings, some parts such as measuring and control instruments are used in the manufacture of parts.

Advantages of Gas Carburizing Process

  • It is a controlled process since its carbon potential is adjustable.
  • Shorter processing time
  • Factors such as part shape, size or machining depth do not limit the application area.
  • It is a non-toxic method, allowing continuous work.
