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 μm
  • 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
