Our cementation, therefore, is actually a parting process in the dry way.
The product obtained by this method is known as cementation steel.
That it refers to cementation at all hangs by a slender thread, but it seems more nearly this than anything else.
The most common method of forming steel is by the process of cementation.
By a blast so tempered at the beginning, the ore gets well calcined, and partially reduced in the way of cementation.
It seems probable that the Ancients did part gold and silver by cementation.
The Sheffield furnace for making bar or blistered steel, called the furnace of cementation, is represented in fig. 1054.
He also gives the method of parting with antimony and sulphur, and by cementation with common salt.
He was familiar with amalgamation, cupellation, the separation of gold and silver by cementation with salt and by nitric acid.
If the cementation be continued too long, the steel acquires a darkish fracture, it is more fusible, and incapable of welding.
A metallurgical coating process in which a metal or alloy such as iron or steel is immersed in a powder of another metal, such as zinc, chromium, or aluminum, and heated to a temperature below the melting point of either. Cementation is often employed to increase resistance to oxidation.
