The report segments the market into key products: borax, boric acid and others, which include sodium metaborate, sodium perborate, boric oxide
and boron trifluoride.
Boron Compounds (Borax, Boric Acid and Others) Market for Borosilicate Glass, Fiberglass, Agriculture, Ceramics, Detergents & Soaps and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020
Commercially important boron compounds such as borax, boric acid, sodium metaborate, sodium perborate, boric oxide
and boron trifluoride are derived from boron minerals.
They also contained about 18 percent boric oxide
, which demonstrates that boron is usable in copper reds.
2 x %DOT, because boric acid is 56% boric oxide
and DOT is 67% boric oxide
Borosilicate glass is made with the following approximate proportions of ingredients: 70% silica, 10% boric oxide
, 8% sodium oxide, 8% potassium oxide, and 1% calcium oxide.
The result is a white cloud, which looks like steam, that consists of boric oxide
, boric acid and water vapor.
Canty's published technical specifications indicate that Boro Plus glass contains up to five percent boric oxide
(B2O3), in fact the independent test shows that it contains no detectable boric oxide
whatsoever, making it indistinguishable from common soda lime glass.
Silica is the main acidic constituent of the more usual glaze frits and, with boric oxide
acting in a subsidiary role, is the main glass network-forming oxide.
Warrick, 86, said the basic recipe for Silly Putty is to mix a silicone derivative with boric oxide
Here there are computer generated examples of high fired, porcelain glazes with increasing amounts of boric oxide

rods; inserted in holes drilled in pile top.
Air Force officials said pentaborane is highly toxic, but when burned produces boric acid and boric oxide
, which they called "relatively benign.
