So, what is boron nitride?

Boron nitride is a highly versatile and heat-resistant compound that is commonly used as an industrial lubricant, mold release agent, and thermal conductor. This white powder has a hexagonal crystal structure and behaves similarly to graphite in terms of its lubricating properties, making it an ideal ingredient for high-temperature applications such as metal processing and aerospace manufacturing. Additionally, boron nitride is non-toxic, chemically inert, and electrically insulating, making it a safe and effective alternative to other materials with similar properties. Its unique combination of thermal and physical characteristics makes boron nitride a valuable additive in a wide range of industrial processes.
