Product Instruction

Boron Nitride, also known as BN, Hexagonal Boron Nitride (H-BN), and hot-pressed Boron Nitride, is an excellent self-lubricate ceramic that can withstand high temperatures and maintain its lubricating capability in a high vacuum environment. AEM's Boron Nitride crucibles are made from hot-pressed boron nitride blank. Hexagonal Boron Nitride (H-BN) behaves similarly with graphite mechanically but offers excellent electrical resistance.,and also can be produced as BN final products directly like crucible, boat, coating, etc.

Main Features

Boron nitride has good electrical insulation, thermal conductivity, chemical stability, and no obvious melting point. The maximum use temperature in 0.1MPA nitrogen can reach 3000 °C, in a neutral reducing atmosphere, it can withstand heat to 2000 °C, and the use temperature in nitrogen and argon can reach 2800 °C, and the stability in oxygen atmosphere is poor, and the use temperature is below 1000 °C. The expansion coefficient of hexagonal boron nitride is equivalent to that of quartz, but the thermal conductivity is ten times that of quartz.

In addition, hexagonal boron nitride does not dissolve in cold water, and when the water is boiled, the hydrolysis is very slow and produces a small amount of boric acid and ammonia. It does not react with weak acid and strong base at room temperature, slightly soluble in hot acid, and needs to be treated with molten sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide to decompose.
