Cementation

DESCRIPTION

The process of cementation or carbocementation indicates a thermochemical treatment that aims at distributing carbon in the superficial layers of low carbon steels. Such process is followed by a tempering one and a distention restoration. The aim is that of obtaining a superficial hard layer and a strong core. 

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Increase of superficial hardness;
  • Improved resistance to wear and tear;
  • Improved endurance
  • Increased superficial capacity to resist specific pressures.
  • Hard core.

DEPTH

From 0,15 to 4,00 mm (class Cm2 – Cm40 – UNI 5381).

APPEARANCE

The artefact can be treated with sand to create a homogeneous effect if requested by the client. It is possible to remove any crusts or oily traces.

STEELS AFFECTED

  • Cementation steels
