Boron steels are used for a variety of applications, as a wear material and as a high strength structural steel. Examples include punching tools, spades, and knives, saw blades, safety beams in vehicles etc.
The type of boron steel used on vehicles today has extremely high strength. The boron steel used on Volvo cars has a yield point of about 1,350-1,400 MPa (196,000-203,000 psi). That’s about four times stronger than average high-strength steel. But the process used to make it that strong takes away some of the steel’s workability properties, such as being able to straighten it.
For now, boron steel is found primarily on European vehicles.
