Nitriding Services: Superior Surface Hardness and Wear Resistance

Progressive Metal Service: Nitriding Solutions

At Progressive Metal Service, we specialize in providing premium nitriding services to meet the unique needs of our clients across various industries nationally. Our unmatched expertise and cutting-edge facilities ensure superior precision and reliability, guaranteeing exceptional surface properties and dimensional stability crucial for high-performance applications.

Advanced QPQ Technology

Progressive Metal Service offers QPQ salt bath nitriding to optimize component performance. Our process involves immersing components in a specialized salt bath infused with nitrogen-bearing salts, followed by controlled quenching and polishing. The result is a hardened nitride layer that offers exceptional wear resistance, corrosion protection, and improved fatigue strength.

Versatility and Precision

Our QPQ nitriding capabilities extend to a variety of materials, including carbon steels, stainless steels, tool steels, and certain non-ferrous alloys. With precise control over process parameters such as temperature, immersion time, and quenching media, we tailor QPQ treatments to suit the specific requirements of each component, ensuring uniform nitride layer formation and minimal distortion.

Superior Surface Properties

Components subjected to our QPQ salt bath nitriding exhibit a range of desirable surface properties, including:

  • Enhanced Hardness: The nitride layer formed during QPQ nitriding significantly increases surface hardness, providing excellent resistance to abrasion, wear, and indentation.
  • Improved Corrosion Resistance: The nitride layer acts as a barrier against corrosive elements, offering superior protection against oxidation, pitting, and other forms of corrosion.
  • Increased Fatigue Strength: QPQ nitriding improves the fatigue strength of components, reducing the likelihood of fatigue failure under cyclic loading conditions.

Certified Excellence

Progressive Metal Service is committed to delivering reliable, consistent, high-quality QPQ nitriding solutions. Our ISO-certified quality management systems affirm our dedication to consistently providing reliable manufacturing services.
