Borocoat®-Diffusion layers are heat resistant up to approx. 1000°C and are suitable in the hot gas path of turbo charger production as well as engine technology.
The excellent wear protection by boronizing components consisting of heat resistant austenitic steels such as AISI 310 (1.4845) and nickel-based alloys like Inconel®, Hastelloy® and Haynes® shows a particular unique feature. The applied layer thicknesses are typically between 10-60 µm with hardnesses of up to 3000 HV.
Borocoat® layers protect automotive components against:
