Themochemical treatment of non-ferrous metals

Novák Pavel - VŠCHT Praha (Czech Republic)

Even though the thermochemical treatment is thought as a typical domain of ferrous alloys, there exists a series of technically important processes in the case of non-ferrous metals. Thermochemical heat treatment processes can be divided to two main groups to the manufacture of wear resistant layers and the corrosion protection, mainly against the high-temperature corrosion. This paper summarizes current knowledge in this field and describes the realization of the processes and examples of practical applications.
