Paper Title:
Evaluation of Brittle Layers Obtained by Boriding on AISI H13 Steels
  Abstract

The fracture toughness of AISI H13 borided steel and the strength adhesion of the coated system were estimated in the present work. The formation of the layers was carried out by the powder pack boriding process at 1273 K with 8 h of treatment. The fracture toughness (KC) of the layer is estimated at 25 and 45 m from the surface using four different Vickers indentation loads. The KC values were estimated by the extension of Palmqvist cracks parallel and perpendicular to the surface obtained at the indentation corners. The adherence of the layer/substrate was evaluated in qualitative form through the Rockwell-C indentation technique. The results obtained by both techniques, show, in first instance, that the fracture toughness of the boride layer can be expressed in the form (KC) (π/2) > (KC) > (KC) (0). Also, high delamination is obtained around the Rockwell-C indentation prints that denote poor adhesion in the coating-substrate interface.
