ceradyne inc. boron products Established in the early 1970s under EaglePicher Boron and recently acquired by Ceradyne, Inc., Ceradyne Boron Products, LLC (Ceradyne Boron) 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 Boron) is required.

Major product categories include:
  • Nuclear Power Plant Chemistries
    • Enriched Boric Acid (EBA)
    • Enriched Sodium Pentaborate
    • 7Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate
  • Containment
    • BorAluminum™ Alloy
    • BoroBond™ Castable Ceramic
  • Semiconductor
    • Enriched UHP Boron
    • Enriched Boron Trifluoride
  • Customized Materials
    • Enriched Zirconium Diboride
    • Enriched Boron Carbide
    • Toll Vacuum Hot Pressing
    • Enriched Iron Boride

Ceradyne Boron is located in Quapaw, Oklahoma where safety, innovation and quality are emphasized. The company is well-known for its ability to engineer products to suit unique customer applications, and where specialists are particularly adept at helping solve problems for the demanding nuclear and semiconductor industries.

Ceradyne Boron is a leading global commercial processor of enriched boron and is one of the largest Boron isotope enrichment facility in the world.
