Metallographic Preparation and Analysis of Carburized Steel

Many steel components can benefit from surface hardening, which improves wear resistance while maintaining a part’s toughness. Surface hardening can be accomplished by nitriding, induction hardening, or even shot peening; but carburizing remains the most viable choice for many applications. In this webinar, Dave Coulston explains what carburizing is, how it is accomplished, and then describes the important chemical, metallurgical and mechanical property results of a carburizing treatment. This is followed by metallographic preparation of carburized steel and microscopic evaluation of the carburized layer. Auf diese Ressource zugreifen
