VaporKote Boriding Process

Energy, Aerospace, and other industrial companies understand the value of highly performing parts that minimize maintenance and downtime. As one of the first providers of the boriding (boronizing) process, VaporKote has significantly decreased wear, erosion, and abrasion problems on numerous critical parts and equipment. Boriding (Boronizing) increases component wear and life up to several times. Boriding (Boronizing) helps  by ensuring a very hard, wear-resistant metal surface. Our erosion protection system uses a boron gas diffusion coating or boronized process to protect critical components.

Boriding (Boronizing) is a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) pack cementation process, where boron atoms are diffused into steel and other substrates of iron, nickel and cobalt base alloys, forming an intermetallic compound at the surface base metal. Uniform diffusion case depths are controlled by thermo chemical reactions. Boriding (boronizing) treatment provides maximum resistance to abrasion, erosion, and wear. Growth to the original part is negligible.

Parts metallurgically treated with our proprietary boron formulas, creat a new, very hard boronized metal surface. VaporKote wear-resistant boron hardened components can be held to close tolerances. If needed, secondary machining can be done on coated surfaces. Masking is done for areas not requiring a hard surface thus enabling the surface to be easily machined after boronizing.

Pumps, valves, pipe spools,  pipe elbows, and other components are fabricated, welded, and boron-hardened for wear and erosion protection. Boronized parts are approved for critical aerospace components. VaporKote also specializes in manufacturing boron hardened pump wear rings that are much harder and more durable than heat treated, plasma sprayed, or stellite overlaid rings.
