3M 10B Enriched Boron Carbide
Categories: Ceramic

Material Notes: Ceradyne, Inc., a 3M company, offers a range ofenriched boron-10 materials designed for the nuclear power industry. These materials can be isotopically tailored to meet individual customer specifications. 3M™ 10B Enriched Boron Carbide offers excellent thermal stability and gamma discrimination, along with a high thermal neutron absorption cross-section. These properties make 3M 10B enriched boron carbide ideal for applications in neutron detecting technologies. 3M 10B enriched boron carbide can be manufactured to meet existing industry standards, such as ASTM C750 and ASTM C751, or more stringent requirements as required by specific customer applications. Where necessary, naturally occurring isotopic materials can be synthesized to comply with unique purity and stoichiometry requirements. Ceradyne has refined the manufacturing process for enriched boron carbide by using enriched boric acid as a precursor material. This process allows greater flexibility in chemistry and physical properties. For example, we can produce boron carbide with specific B to C ratios, enrichments and particle sizes to meet your specifications.
