dc.description.abstract© 2017 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.The influence of plasma nitriding of a maraging 300 steel on mechanical properties at high temperature has been studied. Samples were tensile tested at 600°C in four conditions: solution treated (MAR-S), solution treated and aged (MAR-SA), solution treated and plasma nitrited (MAR-SP) and solution treated, aged and plasma nitrited (MAR-SAP). In the same sequence, the yield strength and ultimate tensile strength increased slightly respectively from 1073 to 1189 MPa and 1174 to 1301 MPa, an increase of about 10% due to plasma nitriding. All the samples presented similar values of elongation, around 18%, but the cross section area reduction decreased significantly by plasma nitriding from ~70% for MAR-S and MAR-SA to ~45% for MAR-SP and MAR-SAP, that is an decrease of 36% in average. This decrease is attributed to brittle fracture nucleated at 50 µm thick iron nitride layer. The inner fracture surface of the tensile tested specimens was predominantly ductile presenting characteristic microcavities.
