Hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN), an advanced synthetic ceramic from Saint-Gobain, combines a number of useful thermal, electrical, physical and chemical properties in one unique material. Saint-Gobain’s more than 50 years of expertise in harnessing these properties and transforming hexagonal BN into sophisticated solutions to application-specific challenges is unsurpassed in the industry.
Boron Nitride powders, also referred to as white graphite are non-abrasive, white powders with a hexagonal platy crystal structure similar to graphite, but with a much higher oxidation resistance at 800ºC. Boron Nitride powders have high thermal conductivity, low coefficient of friction, high dielectric constant and are chemically inert.
Due to this range of unique properties Boron Nitride powders find use in a broad range of applications ranging from electronics, aerospace, oil and gas, ceramic manufacturing and cosmetics.
