Nitriding of sparingly alloyed low-carbon steels of martensitic class


The structure and properties of nitrided sparingly alloyed low-carbon steels of martensitic class with different contents of vanadium are studied. Nitriding of low-carbon steels with a high vanadium content is shown to produce a favorable effect on the hardness and thickness of their surface layer.
