08 Gas carburising and carbonitriding The process of carbonitriding is principally performed in the same way as carburising, only with the difference that both carbon and nitrogen are transferred from the gas to the steel surface. Nitrogen acts in the same way as carbon to increase the hardness of the hardened steel.
