What is Boron Nitride (BN)?

How do you define it?

Boron Nitride (BN)?

Boron nitride (BN)

Refractory compounds of boron, nitrogen and other elements that are both chemically and thermally stable. There are many structures for it, including hexagonal BNs (h–BN), cubic BNs (c-BN), or wurtziteBNs (w-BN).

General Properties of

Boron Nitride (BN)

1. Resilient to inorganic acids, water and chemicals

2. It is slightly soluble in hot acids, but insoluble when dissolved in cold water.

3. In an oxidizing atmosphere, the maximum temperature of operation is 900 and in an inactive reduction atmosphere it’s 2800.

4. Many properties of Boron Nitride are better than carbon materials in many ways.

5. The hexagonal boron-nitride has a very low friction coefficient and high temperature stability. It is also resistant to thermal shock, heat, extreme temperatures, high strength, high resistance, high expansion coefficient, excellent corrosion resistance, as well as resistance to microwave or infrared radiation.

Boron Nitride (BN)

1. Use metal forming release agent or metal wire drawing oil.

2. Materials with special resistance or electrolytic properties for high temperatures

3. The use of high-temperature solid oils, extrusion-anti-wear additives, and additives for ceramic composite material production, as well as anti-oxidation, refractory, and heat reinforcement materials for anti-molten metallic corrosion.

4. Additives in polymer like plastic resin and heat sealing desiccant from Transistor

5. You can use Boron nitride products in various forms to make heat dissipation and insulation parts.

6. Materials that protect against heat in aerospace

7. Cubic boron Nitride can be made by heating it and adding catalyst. It is almost as hard as diamond.

8. Structural materials to be used in atomic reactors.

9. Aircraft, rocket engine nozzle.

10. Insulators that can be used to create plasma arc, high voltage and high frequency electricity.

11. Material packaging that shields against neutron radiation

12. Material made of boron Nitride is extremely hard and can be used in high-speed cutters, geological exploration, drilling, etc.

13. A separation ring is used to separate continuous casting steel, an amorphous-iron flow notch, and continuous casting aluminum release agents (various optical glasses release agents).

14. Protective package for freshness from aluminized.

15. Laser anti-counterfeit aluminum plating, trademark bronze materials, cigarette and beer labels, packaging boxes. Aluminum plating on cigarette boxes.

16. Cosmetics such as lipstick filler are non-toxic and lubricious. They also shine.
