FNC is a process performed on carbon steel bar stock or parts. Carbon and nitrogen are diffused into the steel, creating a “white layer” which creates a protective seal. This will benefit parts in applications where there is increased wear, fatigue, distortion, or corrosion.
This is a two-step process that involves removing contaminants from the surface of the steel such as scale, stains or rust. Once the contaminates are removed from the steel, the part is submerged in hot oil, which displaces any water from the surface of the steel creating a rust preventative layer.
The quench and temper process provides strength and toughness throughout the part being processed. It is a two-stage heat treat process that includes hardening and tempering.
This process is used in applications where the tensile strength, fatigue resistance and impact strengths are of the utmost importance. Quench media can include oil, polymer, water, gas, or salt.
Operations such as rough machining and cold forming can generate residual stresses in parts. If not removed, these stresses can release themselves in an uncontrolled fashion causing dimensional issues at subsequent operations. This process is required on welded material to keep them stress-free.
The coating process starts with proper surface preparation of the parts by immersing them in a series of chemicals. Phosphate and lube coating of parts are performed to facilitate cold forming operations. Phosphate coating also produces base for rust preventive material. Phosphate and lube coating is suitable for several types of low carbon and low alloy steels.
Zinc phosphate coated material can also be dipped in oil to create a protective layer on the steel. This provides rust prevention for an extended period.
