About Saint-Gobain Boron Nitride

Carborundum Corporation, one of the first companies to commercially produce boron nitride products in 1954, was acquired by Saint-Gobain in 1996. Now a business unit within Saint-Gobain Ceramics, Saint-Gobain Boron Nitride remains a world leader in advanced hexagonal boron nitride solutions.


Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), an advanced synthetic ceramic, combines a number of useful physical and chemical properties in one material. Saint-Gobain's 60+ years of expertise in harnessing these properties and transforming hexagonal BN into sophisticated solutions to application-specific challenges is unsurpassed in the industry.
