Re: gudgeon pin material

From: ------


Dear Kim, If you use plasma nitriding, it will not only improve the surface hardness [and hence increase wear resistance to abrasion, and erosion] but it also increase corrosion resistance and fatigue strength -both mechanical fatigue strength and thermal fatigue strength. All these physical properties are very vital for your gudgeon pin application. For on plasma nitriding appplications pl click on www.ipfonline.com and then go to Archives - there I have a couple of articles on this topic which would answer further questions. Max Pune, India.
