The IONIT OX (R) treatment increase the surface hardened of the treated parts, maintaining a tenacious core and increasing corrosion resistance.
Nivac facilities are pioneers in this treatment in Spain obtaining the patent for the IONIT-OX treatment in 2000 until then this process was only carried out in Germany.
The IONIT-OX treatment consists of a combination of:

Gas Nitrocarburizing + Plasma Nitriding + Post-Oxidation.


  • Increased the superficial hardness.
  • Good Resistance to wear and abrasion.
  • High corrosion resistance, over 240 hours in salt spray fog testing according to DIN 50021.
  • High resistance to fatigue.
  • Improvement of the dimensional stability.


  • Mechanical assemblies.
  • Ball joints.
  • Axles.
  • Pistons.
