3M™ 10B Enriched Boric Acid is enriched in the 10B isotope to very high levels and is an extremely proficient neutron absorber – often exceeding accepted quality standards of the nuclear industry worldwide (NQA-1, ISO 9001). We offer material customization for individual reactor conditions, which helps eliminate the need for onsite mixing.

Our 3M™ 10B Enriched Boric Acid is an extremely proficient neutron absorber that is used to help control the reaction in nuclear power plants. Importantly, 10B Enriched Boric Acid meets or exceeds accepted standards of the nuclear industry worldwide (NQA-1, ISO 9001). In chemical reactions, 3M enriched products behave as their natural counterparts.

Customization for our Customers
Additionally, material customization is available for individual reactor conditions. By working closely with 3M technical experts, we can tailor the correct custom enrichment for a reactor. This helps eliminate the need for costly, time-consuming on-site mixing while ensuring boron isotope homogeneity within the material.

A Leading Producer of Enriched Boron
Importantly, this quality product is created and backed by 3M – a leading global commercial processor of enriched boron. We create this product, and others, at one of the largest boron isotope enrichment facilities in the world. Notably, we focus on manufacturing optimized materials with an emphasis on stable boron isotopes. Our proprietary manufacturing processes allow 10B and 11B enrichment from natural occurring ratios up to levels exceeding 99% isotopic purity. In addition, we offer a proven supply chain, consistent product quality and the ability to custom engineer products for your unique applications. Our specialists are experts at solving materials-related problems in the demanding nuclear and semiconductor industries.
