Steam Treating; Enhancing the Surface Properties of Metal Components

Free content from Abbott Furnace Company

Steam Treating; Enhancing the Surface Properties of Metal Components Steam treating is the controlled oxidation of metals to produce a thin layer of oxide on the surface of a component. This process can be used to provide a component with increased corrosion resistance, better wear resistance, increased surface hardness, an attractive surface finish and, in the case of porous materials such as powder metal, seal the part porosity and increase the density.
