This paper describes a novel application of OF-boride layers on steel surfaces. The plasma-sprayed boron carbide powder on steel was diffusion annealed to form a suitable iron-hemiboride intermediate layer with a coefficient of thermal expansion between the coefficients for the steels used and ceramic coatings to create. In the next step, this system was completed with a second plasma-sprayed layer on aluminum oxide o zirconium oxide. The adhesion of these samples was checked after dynamic loading as a result of alternating thermal loads at 600, 800, 1000 or 1200 deg C. The resulting values were compared both with the adhesion values of the same ceramic coatings on steel without a boride intermediate layer and with the adhesion values of these ceramic coatings on steel that were borated according to the classic method in a boron carbide pack with activators. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
