Chromium Nitride Powder

Chromium nitride is a chemical compound of chromium and nitrogen with the formula CrN. It is very hard and extremely resistant to corrosion. It is an interstitial compound, with nitrogen atoms occupying the octahedral holes in the chrome network: as such, it is not strictly a chromium (III) compound nor contains nitride ions (N3-). Chromium forms a second interstitial nitride, chromium nitride, Cr2N.
CrN is used as a coating material for corrosion resistance and in plastic molding and metal stamping applications. CrN is often used in medical implants and instruments. CrN is also a valuable component in advanced multi-component coating systems, such as CrAlN, for tough and wear-resistant applications in cutting tools.
