Faster Firing Glazes: Borates in Ceramics
Ceramics are one of the oldest human technologies—and one that has seen ongoing innovation over the centuries. We work with the global ceramics industry to maximize the benefits imparted by borates. 

U.S. Borax, part of Rio Tinto, is a global leader in the supply and science of borates—naturally-occurring minerals containing boron and other elements. We are 1,000 people serving 650 customers with more than 1,800 delivery locations globally. We supply around 30% of the world’s need for refined borates from our world-class mine in Boron, California, about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles.  Learn more about Rio Tinto.
