Gaseous vs. Salt Bath Nitrocarburizing
Q. Is there a significant difference between salt bath nitrocarburizing and gaseous nitrocarburizing in terms of the resulting finish, both in abrasion and corrosion resistance?

A. Greetings, Benge and Emanoel Ribeiro de Almeida: Suggest you see "ASM Metals Handbook Vol. 4 'Heat Treating'" [affil. link to book on Amazon]. There are numerous end-notes at the end of the chapters.
Also, you should contact, Mr. Dale Poteet, the godfather of nitrocarburizing or Kolene. Good Luck Gentlemen, Sam.Sam Massey
