DYNA-BLUE® & DYNA-BLUE PLUS™: “Eco-friendly new processes that are revolutionizing the Surface Treating Industry. Many companies across the world are specifying DYNA-BLUE® as their Global Standards and Benchmarks for increasing Tool Life. DYNA-BLUE® is a Leading Edge Innovation with Exceptional results.”
DYNA-BLUE® is a low temperature Ferritic Nitrocarburizing surface treatment with 20+ engineered variations typically 950°-1060°F. The process is generally referred to as “Ferritic Nitrocarburizing” and it yields two, distinct metallurgical characteristics: 1. Compound layer of 1880 Vickers (75+ Rockwell C) .0005”-.002” (depends on application). 2. Nitrogen enriched diffusion zone, .002 - .010" deep to support the compound zone (depends on application). This process penetrates holes, bores and ribs as it is not a line of sight process like Nitriding or PVD Coatings The metallurgical properties are diffused into the base material, therefore, therefore it will not flake, peel or chip off like a coating.
DYNA-BLUE® (FERRITIC NITROCARBURIZING) MICROSTRUCTURE
The microstructure of a Ferritic Nitrocarburized treated sample consists of a hard (75+ HRC) compound zone of carbon and nitrogen with a nitrogen rich diffusion zone beneath for support. The hard compound layer increases wear and corrosion resistance, has high compressive residual stress to resist wear, heat checking and cracking. When combined with an oxide layer on the surface it prevents atomic bonding of aluminum, plastic, etc. and reduces the coefficient of friction.
