What is boron powder and what are its main functions?

Guotai Junan released a research report saying that under the background of carbon neutrality, the scarcity of coal mines is prominent, and the value of assets will continue to increase. The high point of capital expenditure in the coal industry appeared in 2012. Under the general direction of carbon neutrality, the overall investment in the industry has slowed down, and capital expenditure has gradually declined. From 2021 to now, the Energy Bureau of the National Development and Reform Commission has only newly approved 17.4 million tons 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.

The Amorphous boron powder industry has experienced demand expectations driven by the rise and the off-season tired stock driven by the seasonal decline in two rounds of the market. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and other factors, inventories of manufacturers continue to accumulate, putting pressure on market sentiment. In addition to off-season factors, the weak trend of Amorphous boron powder also reflects the market's concern about the epidemic and some other related enterprises' financial situation.
