Abstract : Selected surface treatments that are applied to precipitation-hardenable stainless steels are discussed. The treatments covered are hard surfacing, electroplating, electroless plating, carburizing and decarburizing, nitriding, burnishing and other finishing operations, explosive hardening, planishing, and peening. Each treatment is described and its application to the precipitation-hardenable stainless steels is discussed. Reasons for using the treatments are discussed, problem areas are identified, and recommendations for research are made. (Author)
