Properties of CLIN treated parts


During CLIN (controlled liquid ionic nitriding) treatment an extremely wear resistant nitride layer is formed -  the outer compound layer and the diffusion layer thereunder. Due to its composition the compound layer is very hard and shows more ceramic characters. The diffusion layer supports the compound layer.

CLIN treated parts are well known for their:

  • superb adhesive and abrasive wear resistance
  • high surface fatigue resistance
  • impressive corrosion resistance up to 800 hrs in NSS test
  • superior anti-seizure behaviour
  • remarkable oil film load bearing capacity
  • low friction coefficient
  • excellent running-in improvement
