What’s up guys? It’s Michael with Michael Talks Metal back for what else? You guessed it. MORE METAL!!!!! Today it’s one hundred and two …Our topic for today is Nitriding 135 Modified aka 135M or Nitriding #3. Like most alloys designed specifically for nitriding, this alloy contains a healthy addition of aluminum. Chromium and Molybdenum are also components. With a nominal carbon content of point 40 %, it is heat treatable to high strength and hardness limited by the nitriding process temperature. More about that in our next video. It is used in applications where parts are nitrided to achieve a highly wear resistant surface while maintaining strength and toughness in the core. It is often used in gear components.
It is available in all common product forms.
Chemical Composition for Nitriding 135M.
|Element||Min %||Max %|
|*For AMS 6471|
Small variations in these chemistry requirements exist in some specifications.
Typical End Quench Hardenability (EQH):
50 Rc Minimum @ 8/16
45 Rc Minimum @ 12/16
or in some more restrictive specs…..
50 Rc Minimum @ 12/16
46 Rc Minimum @ 16/16
Typical Heat Treatment Temperatures:
Normalize 1800 deg F
Austenitize 1700 deg F
Temper – minimum is the nitriding temperature
AMS 6472 is in a common heat treated condition, ready for nitriding after machining parts:
90,000 psi min yield
112,000 psi min tensile
16% min elongation
50% R of A
We have just a few specs today so here goes with the more common specifications for Nitriding 135M……
