Boron Crystalline (B)

Boron (B) is a semi-metal that is very hard and resistant to heat, of which there are several allotropes. Crystalline boron is a black, lustrous semiconductor almost chemically inert at ordinary temperatures. This crystalline form is the second hardest of all the elements and has one of the highest melting temperatures.

Typical Applications

Crystalline boron is used to make fibers, which have very high tensile strength. It can be added to plastics to make a material stronger than steel yet lighter than aluminum. Boron can be added to steel and other alloys in small allotments (few PPM) to increase surface hardness dramatically. Most ore extracted from the earth is refined into boric acid and sodium tetraborate pentahydrate. Most of the other uses of boron are in the production of glass or ceramics and have some use as a dopant in semiconductors.
