What is boron powder and what are its main functions?

Now China has become a powerful country in science and technology, but do you know how powerful China's technology is? The manned space station alone is not enough, and now it has successfully broken through the key technology of nuclear fusion, even leading the world by 15 years. Does this mean that China is not far from the artificial sun? It turned out that the fully superconducting tokamak nuclear fusion experimental device developed by China at the Hefei Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully achieved a record of 101 seconds of continuous operation at 120 million degrees Celsius, and broke the world record. Compared with the previous record in South Korea, China has time has been directly extended by 5 times, and it seems that we are one step closer to the practical stage of artificial sun.
The success of nuclear fusion technology will lead to the development of Amorphous boron powder.

Overview of Amorphous Boron Powder

Amorphous boron powder MF: B; molecular weight: 10.81; melting point: 2300℃±2℃; sublimation temperature: 2550℃; relative density: 2.34-2.37; solubility: insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid, ethanol and ether, easy to cold. The solution is decomposed into hydrogen by concentrated sulfuric acid and nitric acid and oxidized to boric acid.

Element boronThis means that the ancient Arabs already knew that borax had the ability to melt metal oxides and was used as a flux in welding. Boron has the largest volumetric heat, and its weight is second only to beryllium. Slightly soluble in nitric acid, insoluble in water. Amorphous boron is chemically active. Powder and air can form explosive mixtures. Amorphous boron is prepared by reducing boric anhydride with magnesium. Used in solid ramjets and smokeless clean propellants.


The quality of amorphous boron powder is stable and reliable. This product can be stored for a long time, and products with different particle sizes can be customized according to user requirements.

Application of amorphous boron powder

Amorphous boron powder is mainly used in metallurgy, medicine, ceramics, nuclear industry, chemical industry and other industries.

Amorphous boron powder can be used in the alloy in the form of a compound or as an additive.

Amorphous boron powder is an important raw material for the manufacture of various borides.

Amorphous boron powder can also be used as a catalyst for organic chemical reactions.

The main applications are as follows:

1. In terms of its energy, boron should be the best non-metallic fuel. In addition, the boron powder greatly reduces its ignition temperature due to its irregular shape and large specific surface area;

2. Boron powder is also an important raw material for the production of high-purity boron halide and other boride raw materials;

3. Oxygen-free copper smelting deoxidizer, a small amount of boron powder is added in the metal smelting process, on the one hand, it is used as a deoxidizer to prevent the metal from oxidizing at high temperatures;

4. Special metal products are used as alloy components to form alloys and improve the mechanical properties of metals.

5. Boron powder can also be used as a welding aid;

6. Solid rocket propellant;

Agglomeration affects the dispersion performance and use effect of boron powder. Therefore, the amorphous boron powder should be sealed in a vacuum package, stored in a cool and dry room, and must not be exposed to the air. In addition, the use of amorphous boron powder under stress should be avoided.

Amorphous boron powder price

The price of amorphous boron powder varies randomly with factors such as production costs, transportation costs, international conditions, exchange rates, and the relationship between supply and demand in the amorphous boron powder market. Tanki New Materials Co.,Ltd. aims to help various industries and chemical wholesalers find high-quality, low-cost nanomaterials and chemicals by providing a full set of customized services.

As the duration of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine grows, its impact on commodities is widening amid the tug-of-war. Recently, European and American sanctions against Russia have been issued one after another. In response, Russia has taken advantage of its role as an important supplier of many energy and commodities, requiring exports of commodities, including energy, grain, metal, and wood, to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. Therefore, it is expected that the price of the Amorphous boron powder will continue to increase.
