Nitriding Steel

With a high surface hardness nitriding steel grades offer increased wear resistance


Nitriding steel stockholders and suppliers, delivering to the whole of the UK. Nitriding steel specifications are available in round bar, flat bar and steel plate. Nitriding is a heat treatment process that introduces nitrogen in to the surface of a steel and dependant on the material and nitriding process, a nitride case depth of 0.05mm up to 0.50mm can be achieved. With a high surface hardness nitriding steel grades offer increased wear resistance. This can improve fatigue life and also improve the corrosion resistance (though not for stainless steel grades).

If you do no find the nitriding steel specification you require on our web site please contact our experienced sales team who may be able to assist you with your enquiry.

We welcome export enquiries for nitriding steel. Contact our sales office and consult our shipping policy for further details.

Other nitriding grades include hot work tool steel (H13), cold work tool steel (O1, O2, D2, D3, D6, A2, S1) plastic mould steel (P20. 2767), high speed steel (M2, M42) stainless steel (420, 17/4PH, 440B, 440C) and some cast iron grades are also suitable for nitriding.


When heat treating nitriding steel grades consideration should be given to temperatures, including rate of heating, cooling and soaking times etc. will vary due to factors such as the shape and size of each component. Other considerations during the heat treatment process include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Please consult your heat treatment provider for full guidance on heat treatment of steel grades.


We recommend that you contact your welding consumables supplier who should provide you full assistance and information on welding nitriding steel grades.


Nitriding steel specifications are commonly available with a cast and analysis certificate or a  BS EN 10204 3.1 mill certificate, please request when placing any orders.


All our nitriding steel specifications are supplied in accordance with our ISO 9001:2015 registration.
