The Case for FNC with Post Ox
FNC - Post Ox
what is this process?
Liquid nitriding immerses parts into a molten salt bath (typically cyanates and other salts). This allows for the diffusion of nitrogen and carbon into the surface of the part.
What is this process?
Ferritic NitroCarburizing (FNC) uses ammonia and other gases in a controlled and continuously monitored environment to supply the nitrogen and carbon for diffusion into the part.

What does it all mean?
FNC is the modern, environmentally preferred alternative to Liquid Nitriding and offers greater process control, equivalent to better part properties, and lower costs.
Our FNC process is not yet available for use with stainless steels, but a solution is being developed.
