Abstract:

Only a few studies Ref. 1, 2 have been devoted to the boration of cobalt. Attention has been given to a study of borating cobalt and alloys based upon it due to the fact that one of the cobalt alloys K4ONKhM is used for the manufacture of nonmagnetic, corrosionary stable springs and core samples of electrical measuring instruments. In addition, the hardness of core samples from this alloy, which equals HRC 58-61 insufficient for certain instruments. Therefore it is of practical interest to study the possibilities of increasing the hardness of this alloy by means of boration.
