  1. 1.

    Intermediate annealing of ingots, forgings, and especially strips improves the mechanical properties and grain refining of copper alloys with 0.01–0.03% B.

  2. 2.

    Intermediate homogenizing annealing of forgings lowers the initial softening temperature of cold-rolled strips of the alloy with ∼0.01% B from 200–300 to 150°C.
