Title: Product Showcase: Bodycote's S3P - Specialty Stainless Steel Processes
Kolsterising® is a diffusion based surface hardening technology that is a great solution to eliminate galling, improve mechanical wear resistance, edge retention as well as fatigue strength. In addition to increasing these mechanical properties, this process has no impact on the corrosion resistant properties of the base material or the dimensions of the component. Kolsterising® has been part of many commercialized products in the medical market and continues to be a regularly explored solution in challenging applications. This process allows the use of more common materials such as 316L and achieve the performance of materials such as 465, Nitronic, etc. Unlike coatings, there is no risk of cracking chipping or delamination and risk of contamination. Kolsterising does have an associated masterfile with the FDA as well.
