Ring Side Armouring

Another option for armouring piston ring sides is nitriding.
A controlled side nitriding process significantly increases the surface hardness and hence improves wear resistance. Precipitation of nitride in the diffusion layer additionally reduces susceptibility to microwelding.
See Fig. 30.
