About the Topic:

In this semi-technical presentation, we will talk about two pertinent and remarkable topics: metallurgy and guns. Firearms need to perform and operate under often difficult conditions. They can fail in the field due to corrosion, wear, and other causes.  Nitriding is one method of preventing such failures. The application of this technology can be extended into other related industries.
