The paper presents the results of experimental studies on how electrolysis borating and the steel grade of hardenable parts affects the boron and carbon distribution in the bulk of the diffusion layer. The structure, phase composition, boron and carbon concentration over the thickness of the hardened layer, and boride coating properties are examined. The optimal values of the initial carbon concentration are obtained. The optimal technological modes of the hardening process are determined, which makes it possible to develop a surface with minimum wear rate in abrasive environments.
