Nitraded Steel


Nitraded Steel Handpan

Nitraded Steel Handpans are in fact made of Nitraded Steel. Nitraded Steel is a heat treated steel sheet on which Nitrogen has been introduced. The role of Nitrogen is to increase the stiffness of the material to make it harder and more stable toward the play touches, so the tuned handpan will last longer till it needs re-tuning. This type of material is used initially for making Hangs by panArt and then continued to be used by the Handpan, Pantam and sound-sculpture makers.

Although nowadays Handpans are made of both Nitraded Steel and Stainless Steel (read more about stainless here), Nitraded seems to still have the bigger demand in the market. This type of material brings a mid-range of sustain, more ceramic and clay sounding and high frequency in notes which makes it good for outdoor playing. In addition notes have more clear and separated sound which makes the  nitraded steel handpan better for faster and more professional playing.
