Combat® Industrial Boron Nitride powders are pure, white, ceramic materials with a hexagonal crystal structure similar to graphite. Commonly known as "white graphite," hexagonal BN (hBN) is a synthetic ceramic produced by reacting Boron source and a Nitrogen source at temperatures above 1600°C. The resulting product is a lubricious white powder that has excellent high temperature stability (oxidation resistant up to 900°C) and lubricating properties.
A non-toxic white (clean appearance), and a non-conductor of electricity, boron Nitride offers an excellent substitute for other commonly used powder lubricants in a variety of industrial applications such as graphite, molybdenum disulfide, and organic waxes and oils. In most cases, boron nitride substantially improves the efficiency of these applications.
