Special features of formation of titanium carbide in the surface layer of castings of iron-carbon alloys obtained with the use of investment patterns and “Ti – C” and “FeTi – C” alloying compositions are considered. The phase composition, the structure, and the hardness of the alloyed layers are determined.
