Abstract

In this work, the borided layers were produced on AISI H13 steel via solid boriding with a powders mixture containing 90 wt.% B4C and 10 wt.% NaBF4 for treatment times of 2-6 h at 900, 950 and 1000 °C. The microscopic observations revealed a less pronounced toothed interface between the borided layer and the transition zone. The XRD studies indicated the presence of a dual phase boride layer (FeB/Fe2B) besides the chromium and vanadium borides as precipitates inside it. The boronizing kinetics of AISI H13 steel was investigated by using the classical parabolic growth law. The obtained value of boron activation energy in the entire boride layer (FeB + + Fe2B) was found to be 236.34 kJ mol-1. Furthermore, this value of energy has been compared to the literature data. Finally, the nanohardness and reduced modulus of elasticity were measured for FeB, Fe2B and transition zone.
