Black Oxidizing Overview

Black Oxidizing, also known as Bluing or Black Oxide Coating, is a surface conversion process for ferrous materials. It involves a chemical reaction at the surface of the metal part, typically involving a bath of hot alkaline oxidizing salts. This treatment forms a black iron oxide (magnetite) layer, providing a black appearance.

The primary benefits of Black Oxidizing include enhanced aesthetics & corrosion resistance with minimal dimensional impact on the treated parts or adverse effect on prior heat treatment (owing to the low temperature of the process). It is widely used in various industries for improving the aesthetic and functional qualities of components such as tools, gears, fasteners, and automotive parts.

What kind of results can I expect?

At Nitrera, our Black Oxidizing service transforms the surface of your metal parts into a robust, black finish. This process imbues your components with enhanced aesthetic & corrosion resistance, making them ideal for both functional and decorative purposes.

The treated parts exhibit a sleek, uniform appearance without any significant dimensional change, making them well-suited for precision applications in various industries. With a low process temperature of only 285°F, black oxide is safe for heat treated components e.g. through hardened (quenched & tempered), induction hardened & carburized, making it ideal for tools, pins, shafts, gears and more.
