Surface hardened gold alloys

Preparation by the use of a boronizing technique

Abstract

A process for the surface hardening of high gold-content alloys would improve their performance in a variety of applications. The effects on their hardnesses of heating pure gold and alloys of gold, containing titanium, chromium, nickel or iron, with boron powder in an argon atmosphere at 900 to 950 °C for six hours have therefore been studied. The findings are reported in this article.
