Boron nitride is a white solid material in the as produced hot pressed form. It is a low porosity solid. It is easily machined into complex shapes using standard carbide tooling. The material is anisotropic in its electrical and mechanical properties due to the platy hexagonal crystals and their orientation during the hot press consolidation.

Technical Proposal for Boron Nitride Plant
1. Introduction
Boron Nitride is a kind of good solid lubricant and squeezing-antiattrite additive. It has high temperature-proof, good thermal conductivity, exposure-proof, rot-proof, lubricate in high temperature and good insulating capability. It has a good use rage, such as space navigation, national defence, electron and kern industry.
2. Process introduction
Using Potassium pentaborate that generated by potassium hydroxide and boric acid as raw material, it nitrates with ammonia gas in high temperature and the the product is generated.
3. Technical advantages:
Simple equipment, ripe technology itinerary, rich raw material source, no the three wastes, product’s turnoff rate ≥80%, Boron Nitride content ≥96%, low cost
