A summary of the differences between low temperature carburizing and nitriding
is given by Bell and Zang, Table 1.
The influence of these processes on strength, wear resistance and corrosion resistance opens up the technical possibility of their use in almost all industries, as it can be seen, for example, in the presence of thousands of plants for nitriding
, which are used in many countries of the world.

The treatment is supposed to--and evidently does--provide a harder, more wea - and corrosion-resistant surface than the OEM nitriding
On the other hand, the effects of the glow discharge were both heating and ion nitriding
of the samples.
Active screen plasma nitriding
is one of the novel surface hardening methods which is usually used for formation of iron nitride coating.

Titanium atoms are not merely segregated in another phase, because the nitriding
kinetics of titanium is stronger than those of copper.
by plasma nitriding
, appears to be a suitable solution of the low strength of substrate.
The membership is diverse, ranging from the world's largest heat treatment company to the smallest, and it embraces every variety of thermal process, from annealing and hardening, to carburising and nitriding
They consider the poor resistance to sliding wear or fretting wear, which is the primary drawback of titanium alloys, and the surface modification of these alloys to maintain superior quality and improved performance, focusing on Ti-6Al-4V and Ti-6Al-7Nb alloys and the surface modification processes of PVD TiN coating, plasma nitriding
, nitrogen ion implantation, laser nitriding
, and thermal oxidation.
