Transformative Thermochemical Treatment: Innovations in Material Enhancement

Thermochemical treatment is a technique of heat treatment of metal that adopts chemical reactions and sometimes physical methods to change the chemical composition and structure of the surface of steel pieces in order to obtain better technical and economic benefits than those of homogeneous materials. Steel pieces processed through thermochemical treatment can be considered as special composite materials. With the treatment, the surface of the steel whose core has the original composition becomes the material infiltrated with alloying elements.
