Bodycote acquired Nitrex Metal Technologies of Burlington, Ontario. Nitrex Metal Technologies, which is not affiliated with Nitrex Metal of Montreal, Quebec, specializes in precision gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing in both batch and continuous forms. Continuous gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing are unique in the industry and particularly suited to high-volume automotive work. The acquisition adds to Bodycote’s thermal-processing services, which already range from conventional atmosphere heat treatments like batch IQ, vacuum and induction to specialty technologies like LPC, BoroCote® and Corr-I-Dur®.
