Boron Powder can also be called monomer. Both the mass and volume calorific values are high for boron. Boron is a powder that is light brown or gray-black in color. Although it has active chemical properties, it is stable at room temperatures and will only oxidize once the temperature reaches about 300 degrees Celsius.

Boron Powder Properties

Boron is either a silver-gray or black solid. Crystal boron, which is black in color, has the second highest hardness of diamonds and a brittle texture. Borax is a flux that can be used to weld and melt metal oxides.
Boron’s weight is only second to beryllium in terms of volumetric heat. Boron is soluble in nitric acids but not water. Amorphous boron powder is chemically reactive, and can be combined with air to form explosive mixtures.

Elemental Boron is a powdery black or dark brown color. When the boron is oxidized, a diboron-trioxide film forms. This prevents boron to continue oxidizing. Boron powder is resistant to hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acids and can be used at room temperature.

Boron Powder Applications

Boron is used for metal smelting as well as electronic product manufacture, ceramic production, chemical industry, nuclear industry, and more. These are the applications of boron:

1. Boron halide is produced from high purity boron powder. It can also be used as a source of raw materials to produce boron fibres.

2. Boron compound is used as a gas absorber in the smelting process of special alloyed steel or molten metal;

3. Boron powder is used in rocket fuel to provide high energy.

4. The electronic industry uses a powdered form of Boron as the ignition electrode for the ignition tubes;

5. Boron can be used to replace precious or rare metals.

6. Boron is used in the atomic energy sector as a protection material and for the control rod of the atomic power reactor.
