Boron in metals and gold
Using borax as a flux helps remove metal oxides, improves slag control
From mining to processing to metal recovery, borates serve a versatile role in metallurgical applications.
Their functions include:
Making excellent fluxes, removing metal oxides and dissolving impurities
Stabilizing metallurgical slags, to enable greater waste control
Passivating ferrous metals, to reduce harmful corrosion
Producing more corrosion resistant alloys (steel and aluminum)
The right borate purity, concentration, and granulometry influences these properties and determines their efficacy. With it, you can recover more high-quality material, improve flux functionality, and avoid costly defects in finished products such as cracking and pitting in electroplating.
You invest heavily in your equipment and materials—make a smart decision by partnering with a high-quality supplier, a trusted partner of many top metal producers.
