Unveiling the Compound Zone (White Layer)

Understanding the difference between the White Layer and the Diffusion Zone is crucial because each plays a unique role in enhancing the performance of treated materials. The White Layer is known for its exceptional surface hardness, while the Diffusion Zone maintains the base material's hardness with improved wear resistance properties.

Together during Plasma Nitriding, they offer a powerhouse combo: hard-wearing surface properties and core toughness. This blend ensures that components can withstand surface wear and tear while maintaining the structural integrity and resilience needed for long-term performance.
