Boron is an important element and about 75% of the world reserve is in Turkey and it can be used in a variety of 400 different fields. Moreover it can be used in strategic fields such as defense or nuclear technologies directly or by boronizing of materials for some different applications. In the radiation shielding besides some materials such as lead, the boronizing of the material can be used to increase radiation shielding capability. In this study the importance of the boron and its application will be detailed and application of the boronizing on the radiation shielding properties of some types of steel will be presented.
