boron nitride fiber

[′bȯ‚rän ′nī‚trīd ′fī·bər]
(inorganic chemistry)
Inorganic, high-strength fiber, made of boron nitride, that is resistant to chemicals and electricity but susceptible to oxidation above 1600°F (870°C); used in composite structures for yarns, fibers, and woven products.

Washington, December 3 (ANI): Scientists have used lasers to create the first practical macroscopic yarns from boron nitride fibers, opening the door for an array of applications, from radiation-shielded spacecraft to stronger body armor.
Among their topics are the effect of water-soluble plasticizer on a barren raw material hard plastic extruding course, fabricating indium tin oxide targets by spark plasma sintering and hot-pressing sintering, synthesizing metastable tungsten carbide nanoparticles by a mechano-chemical alloying process, preparing boron nitride fibers by chemical reaction, sialite technology as a new process for the highly effective exploitation of industrial solid wastes, and the quasi-isenotropic compression characters of flier-plates with graded impedance.
