Plasma paste boriding was employed in order to produce the boride layers on Nimonic 80A-alloy. The process was carried out at temperatures of 1023 K, 1073 K and 1123 K for 3, 4 and 6 h in a gas mixture of 50% H2-50% Ar. Borax paste was used as a boron source. The microstructure of the produced surface layers consisted of the mixture of nickel borides and chromium borides. The effect of processing temperature and duration on the thickness of the borided layers was observed. The theoretical thicknesses of the borided layers were estimated using an integral diffusion model. A good correlation was obtained between the theoretical (modeled) and experimental depths of the plasma paste borided layers. The boride layers were characterized by a high hardness ranging from 1160 HV to 2132 HV. The multiphase character of the produced layers resulted in differences in hardness. A significant improvement of the wear resistance of the plasma paste borided Nimonic 80A-alloy was observed in comparison with the non-borided alloy. View Full-Text
