Titanium Hardening Creates a Superior Bearing Surface
Titanium Diffusion Hardening (TDH) is an innovative and proven surface hardening technology from Kamatics.
- Utilizes a diffusion process to create a hardened case layer within the original titanium article (not a coating).
- Hardness of 60 Rockwell C
- Case layer depth .008” or 200 microns
- Creates a smooth hard bearing surface in titanium alloys
Makes Titanium Viable for High Wear, High Load Applications
Untreated titanium boasts a high strength to weight ratio, performs well at high temperatures, and is very resistant to corrosion. However, when compared to steels, it has a relatively low hardness level and tendency to gall and seize under high loads or while sliding. TH treatment eliminates these problems and improves wear and friction properties in bearing applications.
TDH is the best option to take advantage of weight savings offered by Titanium for high-load or high-wear applications.
