In this study the boriding of titanium alloys was attempted with the use of electrochemical methods at room temperature followed by a tempering process at much lower temperatures than those reported in literature. The electrochemical boriding process with tempering at 500 degrees C resulted in the formation of compact TiB and TiB2 layers. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
