Borate caking is a nuisance for many industrial users, but it can be prevented by paying attention to the moisture and temperature conditions in storage areas and by avoiding compaction.
As corporations take the lead in global decarbonization efforts, they look to the multifunctional benefits of borates to reduce energy requirements, boost process performance, and empower emerging technologies.
Anhydrous boron is a more concentrated form of boron—containing 1.4 times more B2
. The additional value that anhydrous products bring goes beyond the concentration difference of B2
Borates are a common input for numerous industrial applications. But finding technical and scientific assistance for borate-related research and product innovations is harder—unless you work with U.S. Borax.
Not all borate products provide the same amount of useable boron. For applications that require consistency in formulation as well as practical economy, refined borates provide a better value than raw mineral borates.
From increasing home efficiency to maintaining sustainable policies at our own facilities, U.S. Borax and the borates we produce help reduce energy use and costs.
Borates’ have improved the formulation of starch-based adhesives for centuries—and are still doing so today.
The kitchen and utility room are two of the most borate-rich places in the home. Borates bring convenience, safety, and cleanliness to cooking and domestic chores.
The borate you use affects your end product or process. U.S. Borax development specialist Allen Zheng explains how to evaluate borate quality for the best possible results.
Do you know how many items of your clothing were manufactured or shipped using borates?
