Chemical and Physical Properties
Molecular weight: 61.83
Specific gravity: 1.51
Appearance: Free-flowing, white, crystal line granules or powder
Solubility: 5.46% boric acid by weight in saturated solution (water) at room temperature
Stability: Optibor is a stable crystalline product that does not change chemically under normal storage conditions. Wide fluctuations in temperature and humidity can cause recrystallisation at particle contact points, resulting in caking. Care should therefore be taken to avoid such fluctuations during storage of the product and to maintain the integrity of the packaging.
Chemical Composition (Theoretical)
Boric oxide, B2O3: 56.30%
Water of crystallization, H2O: 43.70%
Containers: Products may be available in bulk, IBCs, or small bags.
