When higher thermal shock, more spall resistance and lower permanent expansion upon heating is required, Solid Boron Nitride Grade HP is a superior solid grade for formulations of <1,000°C. Additionally, Grade HP has ten times the moisture resistance of Grade A due to the addition of calcium which combines with boric oxide to form calcium borate. Commonly used for many light metal applications such as Al, Ti, Mg and Zn.
Chemically – High corrosion resistance due to the addition of boron nitride; ten times the moisture resistance of other boron nitride solids due to the addition of calcium which combines with boric oxide to form calcium borate.
Thermally – Excellent thermal shock resistance and conductivity – commonly used in many light metal applications such as Al, Ti, Mg, and Zn.
Electrically – Low dielectric constant material – also commonly used in many high temperature insulators.
Machinability – Like other grades of Boron Nitride, Grade HP can be machined using standard high speed ‘tool steel’ equipment. Machining by grinding may be used if preferred or stringent tolerances are required.
