Textured factor can be used to intensify boriding in the formation of hardened layers based either on titanium boride, or on a solid boron solution in titanium.
This is due to a change of the phase composition of the titanium boride layer.
In this case of hardening, the hardened zone is a solid solution of boron in [alpha]-titanium and a small amount of titanium borides Ti[B.
The titanium boride (TiB) reinforcing phase was formed in situ in the clad layer during the cladding process.
The interlocking effect between needle titanium boride (TiB) and the matrix is weaker because of the geometric characteristics of the needle shape.
Less distributed are coatings from hafnium nitrides and carbides, chromium and zirconium carbides, titanium boride
Ladle treatment includes a magnesium trimming addition, titanium boride
(TiB) grain refinement, strontium modification, fluxing and rotary degassing to reduce levels of H gas and non-metallic inclusions.
