3M™ 10B Enriched Zirconium Diboride is used as a burnable poison for nuclear reactor fuel applications

3M™ 10B Enriched Zirconium Diboride (10ZrB2) is a burnable poison for nuclear reactor fuel applications. It combines one of the most efficient neutron absorbers available - 10Boron - with the zirconium, which is a material already present in internal reactor components. This combination is designed to eliminate introduction of new materials into the reactor environment.
