Carburizing is a case-hardening treatment where a part is exposed to a carburizing atmosphere at a high temperature.
This treatment creates a surface layer (case) with an elevated carbon content. The carburized part can be said to comprise a kind of composite material, where the carburized surface is hard but the unaffected core is tough. This gives the part a very fine combination of properties with high strength, wear resistance and toughness.
Processes: Batch (integral quench and pusher) and continuous
