The formation of electro-explosive alloying zone with the thickness up to 50 μm has been revealed. It has been shown that it has a gradient structure, characterized by the decrease of carbon and boron concentration with the increase of the distance up to the treatment surface. The subsequent electron-beam treatment of alloying zone leads to flattening of alloying surface relief and is accompanied by the formation of a multilevel structure at the depth up to 30 μm, characterized by the interchange of some layers with a different level of alloying, having structure of a submicro- and nanoscale level.
