Applications for Boronizing

Due to wear/performance benefits provided by the boronized layer, combined with the broad range of compatible substrates and the cost-effective nature of the process, boronizing is used successfully for general wear resistance of carbon steel components. Additionally, due to its temperature and wear resistance, boronizing is also a good choice for certain tooling applications. 

Some typical applications for boronizing include:

  • Hot forging dies
  • Wire drawing dies
  • Extrusion dies
  • Straightening Rolls
  • Ingot molds
General Components
  • Nozzles
  • Plungers
  • Gears
  • Shafts
  • Rollers
  • Ball valves & seats

Oil & Gas Components
  • Production tubing
  • Valve components
  • Valve fittings
  • Metal seals
  • Coal/Oil burner nozzles 
  • Drill Collar
  • Turbine components
  • Pump impellers
  • wear rings
  • Shaft protection sleeve
  • Guide bars  
  • Chain pin
