Carbon-Rich Atmosphere

Calorized parts have a unique resistance to carburation.  When exposed to high temperatures at carbon-rich atmospheres, steels will be carburized, and therefore become brittle and less corrosion resistant. The protection mechanism is that iron-aluminum alloy formed on the surface has a lower solubility for carbon as compared  to an unprotected surface.
