Abstract

The properties of boron-containing structural powder steels produced using master alloys and boron carbide are examined. It is established that the use of master alloys lead to higher-quality mechanical properties of sintered and thermally treated materials than that of boron carbide. The boron content of structural powder steels that ensure the optimum combination of their properties with master alloys with different compositions is about 1.2%.
