Class Information
Number: 148/213
Name: Metal treatment > Process of modifying or maintaining internal physical structure (i.e., microstructure) or chemical properties of metal, process of reactive coating of metal and process of chemical-heat removing (e.g., flame-cutting, etc.) or burning of metal > Carburizing or nitriding using externally supplied carbon or nitrogen source > Of selected surface area (e.g., zone, top only, etc.) > Utilizing attached protective shield, mask or coating
Description: Process wherein a portion of a workpiece is covered with a temporary protective shield, mask or coating that prohibits the carburizing or nitridizing action in an area to which it is attached and which is not intended to remain a part of the final product and acts in transitory manner to achieve the carburizing or nitridizing of a selective surface area.
