Open-Die Forging for Nitralloy 135 & 135m

Nitralloy 135 and 135m are steel alloy metals explicitly designed for nitriding metal hardening. Nitralloys display increased surface hardness and excellent corrosion resistance without the threat of distortion, which is often observed with other metal hardening processes.

Nitralloy 135 & 135m Metal Composition & Characteristics

Nitralloy 135/135m is favored for its good core strength, high surface hardness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. Nitralloy 135 and 135m specialty steel products are manufactured through nitriding hardening. This process creates the material's high surface hardness and strong corrosion resistance. Nitriding temperature occurs between 900-1100ºF (480-595ºC). After forging, the nitralloy is air-cooled to provide the best possible strength and structure.

Moderate hardening austenitizes at 1700-1750ºF (925-955ºC) for ½ hr per inch of cross section and water or oil quench. Water quench is preferred when the cross-section exceeds 1 inch in thickness.

Applications for Open-Die Forged Nitralloy 135 & 135m

Nitralloy 135 and 135m forgings are often used in industries and applications that require exceptional strength and corrosion resistance. While Nitralloy 135 and 135m are similar in composition, they do have unique differences that set them apart for industrial applications.

Industrial Applications for Nitralloy 135 Forgings

Nitralloy 135 is used in many industries, from oil & gas to aerospace components. Industrial uses for Nitralloy 135 forgings include:

  • Landing gear, engine parts, & other high-stress aerospace components
  • Transmission components in automotive applications
  • Drill collars, drill bits, & other oil drilling equipment
  • Medical equipment & devices

Industrial Applications for Nitralloy 135m Forgings

Nitralloy 135m is commonly used to manufacture saltwater-specific shafts, pumps, fasteners, chemical processing equipment, and components regularly encountered in food and dairy products. Because Nitralloy 135m contains additional elements like vanadium, nickel, and cobalt, Nitralloy 135m is suitable for more demanding and highly corrosive industrial applications. Nitralloy 135m is commonly used within the following industries:

  • Military & defense equipment
  • Oil & gas processing plants
  • Marine & saltwater equipment
  • Turbine components & other high-stress parts in power generation equipment
