Enhancing the Quality, Performance, and Longevity of MIL-Spec Steel Products
Nitrided Components for Military Applications
Our trademarked process for treating nitrided defense and aircraft components, Ionitriding® increases the strength and longevity of virtually any metal military products. We us glow discharge technology to produce nitrided case-hardened MIL-spec components. Our state-of-the-art facility can accommodate large military components, aircraft parts, and industrial tooling up to 30 tons in weight.
Case Hardened MIL-Spec Parts
Our trademarked IonWear® surface hardening process is ideal for military and defense components that require low-temperature thermal treatments. This uniquely engineered metallurgical process combines the benefits of nitriding and steam treating, yielding stronger and more reliable products for the modern defense sector.
Vacuum Hardened Military Parts
Sun Steel’s vacuum hardened military products are tougher, stronger, and more resistant to abrasion– all while maintaining a premium surface finish that resists rust and corrosion.
Steam Treated Steel for Defense Products
Our steam treated steel military and defense components offer increased surface hardness and a higher wear rating. Our state-of-the-art steam treating furnace is 22″ diameter x 36″ deep, capable of processing large MIL-spec parts and industrial tooling up to 800 lb/load.
Steel Stress Relieving
Our stress relieving processes create more reliable military products by relieving internal stresses within the metal’s microstructure. This heat treatment service creates uniformity in strength and prevents distortion of the component when additional machining operations are required – a critical quality for virtually all precision manufactured defense components.
Annealed Components for the Military Industry
Sun Steel Treating provides quality annealed military and defense products processed in our state-of-the-art facility to create more malleable, workable steel components.
