Fe-0.94%Mn alloys were boronized at 1210 K during 4 h by the powder pack method. Three distinct regions of cross-sections were found in such alloys. The boride layers were characterized by means of microscopy in terms of coating morphology and thickness. The hardness and thickness of the boride layers were measured, and it was observed that they depend strongly on the thermal processes performed before boronizing the alloys.
