Abstract

Steel AISI 1050 (steel 50) and chilled cast iron are studied after 5-h solid-phase boronizing from a powder environment at 900 A degrees C. The surfaces of the boronized specimens are studied by x-ray and electron microscopic analyses and their Vickers microhardness is measured. The wear resistance is determined by the pin-on-disc method.
