    Default Anyone doing Boronizing or having it done.

    I have a tool steel part about 65HRC that my customer is considering having Boronized.
    Anyone doing it or having anything done. Or does anyone have a good reliable vendor.
    Would it be better to Heat Tread this part before Boronizing or after.
    Thanks.

    I went in search of "rainbow" TiN ... or whatever it ACTUALLY is.. several months ago.

    Google turned-up several firms doing a whole raft of such as "tool and cutter" coatings. Mostly, but not-only. More than one of them with Boron involved.

    I didn't save that search, but you should be able to find the service as easily. Cutting tools are a common need, exotic coatings biz.

    References, they may themselves be able to furnish.

    Have you tried Dayton Progress?
    Surface Treatments and Coatings for Improved Productivity | Dayton Lamina Corporation

    I've never had them do any coatings, but I have used them extensively for decades and I'm always impressed with the quality that comes out of that place.

    If you call and talk to one of their engineers, if they can't do it, I'll bet they know a place that can.

    You may try Tool-Flo in Houston. They do various different coatings on coustomer supplied parts. Another place to try is Body-Kote in the DFW metroplex. I know of a place or two that does "Hard-Kote" which is a boron coating, on oilfield parts. It will change your heat treat because if the heat generated during the hot spray process. And far as I know, it can't be re-heat treated once applied.
