B4C Technologies’ Generation 2 Thermal Boron Diffusion (TBD) Process was developed to help extend the life of metal parts in the harshest abrasive and corrosive conditions. Every industry has its own unique wear issues and B4C Technologies works closely with engineering teams from a wide variety of leading edge companies to find solutions to specific challenges in developing the next generation of machinery and parts.
B4C’s TBD process transforms the surface of metal parts into an extremely hard and slick intermetallic non-brittle boride layer. The resulting boride layer is NOT A COATING and therefore eliminates the potential for bond failure resulting in delamination. Additionally, because the base material is transformed to an intermetallic boride from the original surface down to the desired penetration depth there is zero dimensional change that occurs through this process.
