 Boronising, sometimes referred to as boriding, is a diffusion coating that has a low co-efficient of friction that is capable of retaining its high hardness at elevated temperatures. The process improves resistance to corrosion and abrasive wear, reduced coefficient of friction, and with higher surface hardness of around 1200 to 2200 HV0.1

Wear and Friction Tech ( WFT) has knowhow on Pack, Liquid and Paste methods of boronizing or boriding. The Boriding or Boronizing process uses specially formulated boron-yielding material along with activators and heated to temperatures between 800 and 920°C. Boron atoms diffuses into the substrate, forming very hard borides interstitially within the surface of the material.

  • Very hard surface layer (1200-2200 HV)

  • Case depth: 10 to 500 microns (500 micron for special cases)

  • Low coefficient of friction (Anti Galling and Anti Scuffing)

  • Acid resistance

  • Erosion resistance

  • Resistance to Abrasive wear, Corrosion, and Oxidation.
