From previous studies, most of the research work was focused on carbon materials and silica particles, but the studies on the addition of boride into CE resins have still not been conducted adequately.
In particular, aluminum borides are known to have catalytic properties as heterogeneous nucleation sites of primary [alpha]Al phase (Al) in aluminum alloys' solidification.
This method is used to produce the nanocomposite coating, which has metallic matrix, such as Cu [54, 55], Al [56, 57], Co [58], or alloy matrix [59-61], and its nanofillers are nitrite, carbide, boride, diamond, CNT, or others [54-61].
It should be noted that the introduction to these CMs (5-10)% reinforcing fillers (refractory oxides, nitrides, borides and carbides) leads to an increase in the resistance of their metal matrix to force loads.
They may also contain other elements that can form other carbides or borides that help increase wear resistance in high-temperature applications.
So far, a number of theoretical and experimental works have been done to investigate the structural, electronic, and elastic properties of titanium borides [7-11], leaving their dynamical properties highly unexplored [12, 13].
The studied material in this research work is VT3-1 titanium alloy containing the necessary alloy elements to form borides during boriding the surface layer of samples.
Rare earth and alkaline earth metal borides belong to the group of nonoxide type metal-like compounds and have high melting point, high chemical stability, stable specific resistance, low expansion coefficient at certain temperature ranges, diverse magnetic orders, and high neutron absorbability [1,2].
