—Boron, as an alloy element, and its compounds are used in a wide range. It is determined that, boron and its compounds increases physical, chemical, mechanical and metallurgical properties of materials. With bronzing, materials get some the properties such as high hardness, high wear, less friction coefficient and high corrosion. In this study, effect on the mechanical properties of boron addition of 60SiCr7 steel were investigated. 60SiCr7 of spring steel, which is relatively low compared with treatment steel ductility by heat treatment in the treatment and in addition, various amounts of boron (ppm ratio) and improving the mechanical properties by alloying has been attempted. As a result of 15-30 ppm added steel in tensile and fracture toughness has improved.
—Boron, boron steels, mechanical testing.
