Boron Products

ceradyne inc. boron products Established in the early 1970s under EaglePicher Boron and acquired by Ceradyne, Inc., Ceradyne Boron Products supplies neutron absorbing and reflecting components in materials utilizing enriched 10Boron and 11Boron isotopes.

The 10Boron isotope is a strong neutron absorber and is used for both nuclear waste containment and nuclear power plant neutron radiation control. The company also produces complementary chemical isotopes used in the normal operation and control of nuclear power plants. The 11Boron isotope is used as an additive to semiconductor grade silicon as a "doping" agent and in other semiconductor processes where ultra high purity Boron (UHP) is required.
