Boron nitride is an excellent heat conductor and electrical insulator with overall cost reduction while improving physical properties at lower loading.

Application gallery

Boron nitride properties provide many benefits to thermoplastics to enable an efficient thermal conduction combined with electrical insulation:
  • Superior thermal conductivity - BN powders can increase thermal conductivity up to 10 W/mK in-plane
  • Heat dissipation
  • Effective electrical insulation - dielectric constant 3.9
  • Good dispersion
  • Soft and lubricious aspect - Mohs' hardness (=1.2)
These properties lead to:
