Global boron powder market trend 2023-2026 What is Boron Used For? by Newsjumbleaid

From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers. 

Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the boron powder. 

What is Boron B?
Boron is a chemical element with the symbol B and atomic number 5. 
As the lightest element in the boron family, it has three valence electrons that can form covalent bonds to produce compounds as diverse as boric acid, mineral sodium borate, and super-hard crystals of boron carbide and boron nitride. 
 
What is Boron Used For?
Both crystalline boron and boron oxide are hard. The former is used to make cutting tools and drill bits, while the latter can be used to make artificial gems. 
 
Boron is known as the "vitamin of metal materials". It can replace molybdenum, chromium, nickel, and other precious metals to make stainless steel when mixed with a few parts of boron in molten steel during steelmaking. It has better strength and excellent mechanical properties. The conductivity of copper or aluminum can be improved by adding a few parts per million of boron to the molten solution. 
 
Ceramic based on metal boride used for making rocket nozzles, high temperature bearings, high temperature electrodes, and electrical contacts. 
 
Simple boron is a highly efficient neutron absorber in the atomic energy industry. Boron fluoride is used to make counters in nuclear reactors, and boron is mixed with aluminum alloy to make neutron shielding material. Borane can be used as rocket fuel in the space industry, and triethyl boron as rocket propellant.
 
Ndfeb magnetic material is used to make computer disk drives, motors for office automation equipment, video cameras and video recorders, audio speakers and magnetic resonance imaging systems for medical use.
 
Boron carbide and boron nitride can be used to produce ceramics and ceramic fibers with high temperature and corrosion resistance, which are used in aerospace and automotive industries, as well as processing gems, cutting tools, bearings, sandblasting nozzles and bulletproof materials. Fiber insulation materials made of zinc borate can be used as fire retardant, bleaching and mordant. 
 
Boron is an essential element for plant growth, flowering and fruiting. Lack of boron in the soil, the formation of leguminous rhizobia will be difficult, flax, hemp, alfalfa and other crops will stop growing, beet root rot, cotton bolls, sunflower withered; In addition, boron is also an indispensable element in human bones. Proper intake of boron can reduce blood lipid, inflammation, anticoagulation, anti-tumor, especially can reduce the incidence of prostate cancer.
 
 
Boron can be divided into crystalline boron and amorphous boron.
 
Differences between Crystalline Boron and Amorphous Boron
Crystalline Boron
Crystalline boron is a fragile, dark, shiny quasi - metal. Amorphous boron is a brown powder.
 
Crystal boron is black gray, high hardness, similar to diamond hardness, it is commonly used to replace diamond to manufacture cutting tools or drill. It conducts electricity poorly, but its conductivity increases with increasing temperature, showing a difference from that of a metal conductor. 
Crystalline boron is quite stable at room temperature and can only react with fluorine.  Only at high temperature it can react with nitrogen, oxygen, chlorine, sulfur, bromine, iodine and other non-metallic elements. 
 
Amorphous Boron
Amorphous boron is relatively active, slowly oxidized in air, and almost reacts with most metal elements at high temperature to form non-integral borides. 
Amorphous boron powder is an important energy material used as solid fuel in composite solid propellant. Boron, with a calorific value more than twice that of carbon, about twice that of aluminum and more than twice that of magnesium, has almost three times the calorific value of hydrocarbon fuels, and is only slightly less dense than aluminum. It has the highest calorific value by volume and should be the best nonmetallic fuel for its energy.  The ignition temperature of amorphous boron decreases greatly because of its irregular shape and large specific surface area.
 
Amorphous Boron Powder Price
The price is influenced by many factors including the supply and demand in the market, industry trends, economic activity, market sentiment, and unexpected events.

Researchers at the University of Warwick in the UK have developed a lithium battery technology innovation. Adding graphene beams doubles battery life. By strengthening the structure of the anode with graphene beams, they have found an effective way to replace the graphite in the anode with silicon. Thereby increasing the capacity of the lithium-ion battery and more than doubling the lifespan.
As a supplier of anode materials for lithium batteries, we also provide boron powder. We will continue to provide boron powder for the global market, please feel free to contact us.
