Hello,
I am a Mechanical Engineering student at the University Of Missouri. My Engineering Materials proffesor has assigned a writing assignment where we are supposed to determine an alternative to carburizing 1020 steel. He stated that we should look at nitriding. I have been researching, and i can not find any definative information that leads to me believe 1020 steel is able to undergo nitriding. One source says it is while another says that it is not. I have never researched for an engineering type paper before so I am at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just to clarify I am not trying to take the easy way out I just need some direction.

Thank You,
Jim Mahan

Good for you, you are using this forum as a resource, and I agree you are not looking for the esy way out.

I know I am able to get 4130 nitride processed. This is the way I would proceed.

Look for Nitride processors. Locate an e-mail address or phone number of several. Then call or e-mail them and state that you are an engineering student and need to know if 1020 can be nitride processed. It is my understanding that any material that can be case hardened or carbutized can be nitrided.... but I do no know that for a fact.

Next.. please let us know what you learn.

Thank you,
