Efficient, affordable living
It’s simple logic: If building materials last longer, repair and replacement costs go down. If energy consumption is more efficient, heating and transportation costs are more reasonable.
- Whether used in building construction or railway ties, the durability of U.S. Borax-treated wood can reduce repair and replacement expenses.
- Borates impart benefits during the manufacture of glass fiber insulation and contribute to the thermal insulation properties of the final product. Borate-containing insulation reduces heat loss in buildings—improving energy efficiency and lowering heating and cooling costs.
- Boron is an essential nutrient for crop growth. Boron supplementation can help farmers increase crop yield and quality, which can help reduce bottom-line food costs.
