Borax family. How can it make your next great product even better?
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.
In order to support local community efforts to fight COVID-19 and its social and economic impacts, Rio Tinto (of which U.S. Borax is a part) is investing $10 million in a variety of grassroots projects across Canada and the United States.
Fire safety is not just about preventing fire, but ensuring that if a fire happens, people can escape it. 20 Mule Team Borax Firebrake ZB is a flame retardant and smoke suppressant that can help improve the safety properties of polymer and composite materials—and increase the likelihood of getting everyone out safely.
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.
Using borates for wood protection helps builders take advantage of wood’s carbon-reduction properties, cost-effective construction methods, and resilience to meet the housing needs of a growing global population.
U.S. Borax’s mission to improve modern living starts at home. Each year, we provide funds for government and non-profit organizations that are committed to improving our local California communities. If your organization has a project or need, we may be able to help.
