Look closely, and you’ll find a wide range of applications of borates in automobiles. In fact, auto makers find uses for borates in nearly every part and system. Borates benefit the automotive industry by providing borosilicate glass, flame retardancy, corrosion resistance, and friction resistance.
U.S. Borax is a valued research and technical partner for leading companies in the glass industry as they pursue aggressive goals for reducing carbon emissions.
Heavy industry manufacturers lay the foundations on which we build our modern life. To produce their products efficiently and cost-effectively, they depend on Dehybor
as a consistent, reliable source of boric oxide.
In a year when uncertainty is the rule, U.S. Borax has provided a reliable source of borates to insulation manufacturers, helping to ensure more predictable comfort and energy efficiency for homeowners.
U.S. Borax partners in research with Linde to demonstrate how borosilicate glass producers can benefit from a new technology solution that significantly reduces glass manufacturing’s carbon footprint—and provides opportunities for increased profitability.
One of the most wonderful things about metals is that once they have served a lifetime of use in one form, they can be transformed again,
making them a practical go-to material for everything from heavy industry and construction to electronics, batteries, household products, and even art.
Manufacturers across myriad industries rely on cost-effective 20 Mule Team
. Some of the most important applications are the least noticed by end consumers.
Glass is an essential product for modern living, and glass manufacturers are working to build a sustainable path for the industry’s future.
Few engineering challenges are as tricky as those that were met during the construction of the Channel Tunnel between England and France. Fortunately, the properties of borosilicate glass provided a solution to one of the most important issues: Lighting.
Boric oxide is widely used in fiberglass formulations because it has remarkable and relevant glass-forming, fluxing, and viscosity-lowering properties. Learn why manufacturers use boric oxide in insulation fiberglass.
