Production of boron-containing powder steels using master alloys and boron carbide
The properties of boron-containing structural powder steels produced using master alloys and boron carbide are examined. It is established that sintered and thermally treated materials produced with master alloys show better mechanical properties than those made with the use of boron carbide. The boron content of structural powder steels that promotes the optimum combination of properties with the use of master alloys with different compositions is about 1.2%.
