carbonitriding

[‚kär·bə′nī‚trīd·iŋ]
(metallurgy)
A case-hardening process that maintains carbon and alloy steels in a hot gaseous atmosphere from which they absorb carbon and nitrogen simultaneously, producing a hard, wear-resistant surface.

6), (7) Among different processes for carbonitriding of metals, this method shows great potential not only for not decreasing the corrosion resistance of samples, but also for increasing it by controlling the effective factors on the coating process.
Unlike the mono-phase nitride [epsilon] (Fe2--3N or Fe2--3CxNy) obtained at bath nitriding or carbonitriding and which is glance pitched and porous, the [gamma] phase offers very good properties of wear and viscosity.
