Black nitride is an alternate term for ferritic nitrocarburizing, a hard, corrosion-resistant surface treatment that diffuses carbon and nitrogen into the surface of the treated parts, making them very hard while retaining core strength and ductility. These specific characteristics of the process make it useful for many automobile parts.
The black nitriding process improves fatigue strength, provides exceptional lubricity, and a low coefficient of friction. The process will hold dimensional requirements with little or no distortion and provides improved wear and corrosion resistance. The result is a hardness of 52-58 HRC with a matte black color. Black nitriding also meets many mil specs as well as AMS 2753 specifications.
