Abstract Diffusion behavior of carbon and its hardening effect on plasma carburized M50NiL steel were investigated systematically. The plasma carburizing was carried out in a mixture of gaseous acetone (30%) and hydrogen (70%) at temperatures of 400, 450, 500 and 550 °C for durations of 4, 8 and 12 h, respectively. Influences of treatment temperature and duration on properties of the carburized layer were investigated with optical microscope, atomic force microscope, X-ray diffractometer, micro… CONTINUE READING
