The earth’s crust holds 0.001% of its boron. Boron is a dark or silvery-gray solid. It is hardier than diamond but is much more opaque in crystalline form. The material is also brittle. Boron is named in Arabic after the Arabic term “flux”. It is believed that early Arabs understood that borax could be used to melt metals oxides.
Boron is either a black-colored or dark-colored powder. The boron in this prevents it from oxidizing further by forming a boron triooxide film when oxygen is added to the air. Fluorine can be mixed with Boron at normal temperature. Boron does not dissolve in water. But powdered, soluble boron in boiling nitric or sulfuric acid.
Properties of amorphousboron Powder
Amorphous boron possesses more active chemical characteristics than the crystalline elemental. It is frequently substituted for diamonds when making tools such as drill bits or cutting instruments. As a deoxidizer in metal smelting, some boron is also added. To prevent the metal from burning at high temperatures, and to enhance the metallic properties, the alloy forms. In the case of boron, copper can be used as a control rod for atomic-reacting reactors.
Amorphous, boron-powder will quickly become an essential energy material. The potential for its use in composite solidfuels is already being evaluated. For solid fuels, boron has a calorific factor that is nearly double that for carbon. Aluminum and magnesium have similar values, but boron offers more energy than either. Volumetric calorific value for boron fuels is three times as high, with a density only slightly lower that aluminum.
The highest calorific value is for Amorphous Borion Powder. Boron, in terms of its energy, should be the top non-metal gasoline. The ignition temperature of amorphous borion is reduced due to its complex shape and large area.
Application of amorphous Borosilicate
1. For pyrotechnic and additives, the best nonmetal fuel should be boron in terms of energy. A result of its large specific surface and irregular shapes, the ignition temp of boron is significantly lower.
2. Boron powder is also used in high-purity production of boron, halide.
3. An oxygen-free copper deoxidizer for smelting. A small amount of Boron powder can be added during metal smelting to act as a deoxidizer.
4. You can use them as an alloy component to special metal products.
5. Boron powder may also be used for welding purposes
6. Rocket fuel that is solid
7. Car airbag trigger;
8. Magnesium-carbon Brick Additives to Steelmaking High-Temperature Furnace;
