Solar power offers exciting potential as a clean and endless energy source. Yet scaling it will require more efficient and durable products for harnessing the sun’s power. Discover how boron helps improve the performance and increase the lifespan of solar energy products.
Learn more about a recently published peer-reviewed paper from a U.S. Borax researcher on the benefits of using boron compounds in lithium batteries.
Businesses with specialty applications require a special solution: U.S. Borax powders. Our powders contain extremely small particles, but they offer big benefits!
Nuclear energy today is safer than ever, in no small part due to the beneficial properties of boron for containing nuclear reactions.
Oil is a staple of our energy supply, and its numerous other industrial uses mean that it will be in demand for some time to come. Using borates in oilfield chemical applications helps make oil production more effective, more efficient, and cleaner.
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.
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.
Vitreous enameling—the fusing of a thin layer of glass to a metal base—is virtually impossible to achieve on large areas unless the glass has a high (up to 25%) boric oxide content. Learn how manufacturers are rediscovering the versatility of this virtuous process.
At U.S. Borax, it has always been our approach to work on behalf of borate users. We invest in researching new applications for this important substance and comparing them to others in the market, keeping regulatory issues and sustainability top of mind.
