Boronizing is a thermochemical surface treatment in which Boron atoms diffuse into the steel substrate and for a very hard Borocoat-layer. Boronizing easily tops the performance of commonly used methods such as carburizing and nitriding.
Properties of Borocoat Layers
- High hardness 1400-2600 HV, even on non-alloyed steels
- Diffusion depth 10-250 ¼m
- High abrasion resistance, resistance against cold welding
- Excellent thermal stability
- Self-lubricating effect at high temperatures
- Superior bonding strength, no coating but diffusion layer
- Good resistance against molten metals (Al, Zn)
- Automotive components (turbo charger engineering)
- Oil and gas industry (valves and accessories)
- Power plant engineering
- Tool-making and metal forming technology
- Plastics processing
- Glass production
- Gear manufacturing
- Components for textile machinery
- Aluminum processing
- Mechanical engineering
