Results are given for a study of electrolytic boriding of components made of different grades of steel (steels 20, 40Kh, and 50), and boriding technology, results of metallographic and x-ray structural analyses, and a study of the quantitative change in FeB and Fe2B phases through the depth of a diffusion layer is provided. Comparative results of research show the operating properties after various forms of chemical heat treatment and heat treatment.
