What is Ferro Boron?
Ferro boron, also known as ferroboron alloy, is composed of iron and boron, and other impurities such as C, Si, Al, S, P, etc.

Ferro Boron Uses
Ferro boron is mainly used in steel making as an alloying agent. There are 0.002%-0.005% of boron in the steel. Adding ferro boron in carbon steel and structure steel can improve the hardenability and mechanical properties of steel. Adding boron to high-quality steel can replace other alloys. Adding boron to heat-resistant steel and heat-resistant alloys not only improves their heat resistance but also improves the plasticity of the alloy.
Adding ferro boron in cast iron not only removes graphite but also precipitates boron-containing carbide structure, which improves the wear resistance of cast iron. It can be used in the production of piston rings, cylinder liners, valve guides, cams, valve seats, and other parts.
Ferro Boron Production
The production methods of ferro boron include the electric furnace reduction method, the electric furnace aluminothermic method, and the out-of-furnace aluminothermic method.
The electric furnace carbon reduction method produces ferro boron, because of the high carbon content, the use is limited, so it is rarely used.
Ferro boron is produced by the aluminothermic method outside the furnace. Boron anhydride is used as raw material, and the mixture of aluminum and magnesium-aluminum alloy is used as a reducing agent. The upper ignition method is used for smelting to produce low-carbon ferro boron.
