|Increase tool life with Salt Bath Nitriding||Nitriding
provides a thin, hard case on high speed steel tools which will increase
tool life two or three times, and in some cases four or five times. The
nitrided case (.001 - .002") is extremely hard, and must be rated
by scratch test, file test, or by Vickers readings.
Prior to nitriding, preliminary heat treating is done in salt baths, followed by a draw and grinding. The nitriding bath usually runs at 1000-1050°F, at or below the drawing temperature.
With careful liquid salt bath treatment throughout the heat treating process, there is little if any change in dimension of parts.
