BNNT P1-Beta

The initial product is considered “beta” because additional refinements in the production process are being made. The amounts of boron and hexagonal-boron nitride (h-BN) present in the material are being adjusted while optimizing for BNNT. Customers planning on utilizing wet chemistry to work with the material should take particular note of this, as different batches will have slightly different amounts of BNNT, h-BN and boron. All BNNT P1 (beta) products are catalyst free (elemental B and N > 99.9%)

BNNT Materials has, this year, been aggressively using all our material for applications development, in our new applications division and with application partners. Contact us to discuss becoming an application partner based on your application or research.

We are now increasing production capacity, working through order backlog accumulated in recent months, and again accepting new orders -- lead-times will depend on demand and order sizes as we scale-up. If you can provide advance notice, or distribute larger orders over multiple deliveries, we can better accommodate all of your needs.

To order, please enter information via REQUEST QUOTE link or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., indicating amount and types of material requested. We will respond with a quote and lead-time estimates.

Key BNNT properties include [1,2,3]:

  • Matches strength of Carbon Nanotubes (CNT); BNNT and CNT are the strongest two fibers that will ever be made.
  • Actually fibril, i.e. few wall very very long tubes (this has not yet been achieved for CNT in any quantity and may never be achieved).
  • Maintain strength to over 900°C; CNT start losing strength at 400°C.
  • Thermally very conductive.
  • Electrically an insulator.
  • White/clear. 
  • Functionizable. 
  • Possibly no cytotoxic effects [4,5].

Discovery & Innovation 

  • Science --> the few wall novel materials with their unique chemistry will be the basis for scientific discoveries on the same scale as has taken place with CNT.
  • Product R&D --> the first few tests with compositing and biomedicine indicate that BNNT can be used for making innovative products that will make global market impacts.
  • Game changing products --> recent discoveries will result in the materials soon becoming available at prices and quantities that support long term investment for profitable products.

BNNT, LLC's goal is to provide the raw and purified BNNT for science, product R&D and game changing products.
