The simplified classification of the techniques of boriding was presented in this chapter. The two main groups of the methods were indicated: chemical techniques and physical techniques regarding the technological aspects of boriding process. Such a classification was based on how to produce the active atoms or ions of boron, which might be adsorbed on the surface of metal alloys and could diffuse into the substrate. The most intensively developed techniques were put in the boxes drawn in a broken line, indicating the current trends in boriding.
