Surface Hardening of Steels: Understanding the Basics
Joseph R. Davis
ASM International, 2002 - Technology & Engineering - 364 pages
Annotation A practical selection guide to help engineers and technicians choose the mot efficient surface hardening techniques that offer consistent and repeatable results. Emphasis is placed on characteristics such as processing temperature, case/coating thickness, bond strength, and hardness level obtained. The advantages and limitations of the various thermochemical, thermal and coating/surface modification technologies are compared
