Case Harden

CASE HARDEN C019

Carbon and/or other elements are added to the surface of low-carbon steels or iron, so that upon quenching a hardened case or surface is obtained.

The center of the steel remains soft or ductile throughout this process.

The case hardening can be removed with a grinder, if you have to machine or finish the surface.
