Boriding of Fe–Cr alloy (5-30% chromium) and commercial chromium steel (13 and 25% Cr) samples in amorphous boron powder at 850–950ºC and reaction times 3600-43200 s (1-12 h) results in the formation of a surface coating consisting of two boride layers. In the case of Fe–Cr alloys containing 5-15% chromium and a 13% Cr steel, the outer layer bordering the boriding agent consists of the (Fe,Cr)B phase, whereas the inner adjacent to the solid substrate consists of the (Fe,Cr)2B phase. Each layer is a homogeneous phase (microstructure of the first type). With Fe–Cr alloys containing 25 and 30% chromium and a 25% Cr steel, each of two boride layers consists of two phases. The outer layer comprises the (Fe,Cr)B and (Cr,Fe)B phases, while the inner comprises the (Fe,Cr)2B and (Cr,Fe)2B phases. Both layers have a regular network-platelet microstructure of the second type. With Fe–5% Cr and Fe–10% Cr alloys, boriding during 3600 s leads to the formation of a single (Fe,Cr)2B layer. The next (Fe,Cr)B layer occurs after the first-formed (Fe,Cr)2B layer has reached, depending on the temperature of reaction, a thickness of 100-180 µm. With other alloys and steels, a reaction time of 3600 s is sufficient for both boride layers (Fe,Cr)B and (Fe,Cr)2B to occur. The characteristic feature of the layers is a pronounced texture, the strongest reflections being {002} and {020} for the FeB phase and {002} for the Fe2B phase. Diffusional growth kinetics of boride layers are close to parabolic and can more adequately be described by a system of two non-linear differential equations. Values of layer growth-rate constants are provided. Their temperature dependence obeys a relation of the Arrhenius type. Boride layers with the microstructure of the second type exhibit a much higher wear resistance than those with the microstructure of the first type, the difference being more than an order of magnitude.
