Possibly Harry, it is a brown powder, probably mispelt. What and how is it used?

You heat the steel to cherry red and stick it in the powder which sticks to the metal, heat it to cherry red again and plunge it into cold water.

That's vastly over simplified and misses out H&S such as wearing welding goggles.

Crankshaft journals and camshafts are case hardened. It gives a hard surface on a softer metal underneath (hence the name) so gives a hard wearing surface but the component is less likely to crack.

I just wondered as I've never heard of it, and I was meant to be an engineering buyer!!! You live and learn. I must admit I can't see a reson as to why I would ever need it. It was a jar left in a small workshop off the main garage area, along with a few other bits that remain useless to me at the moment! No doubt I will have one of those "Oooh I need that!" moments at some stage.
