Zinc Borate: Long-Lasting and Fireproof

Produced and introduced to the market as a result of the Research and Development projects conducted by the world’s boron leader Eti Maden in order to popularize the use of boron and boron-based products, Zinc Borate delays the break-out and spread of a fire and is used in industries such as the cable, paint, cloth, electronic items, carpet coating, automobile and aircraft interior parts, and paper industries. Zinc Borate not only turns plastic materials, which are actively used in many areas of daily life, into stronger, and more stable products of high quality, it also protects these products against the break-out of fire. Also used for insulation, Zinc Borate makes PVC coating, MDF and EVA products more durable. Widely used in industries such as the polymer, wooden, and textile industry, Zinc Borate is an inorganic additive which is flame-retardant. Thanks to its flame-resistant properties, as well as its ability to suppress smoke and prevent corrosion, it is a raw material that is frequently utilized in several industries.

Boron Offers Safe Living Spaces

Developed by the field experts at Eti Maden, Zinc Borate helps create safer living spaces by preventing the formation of smoke and poisonous gases in the event of a fire. Zinc Borate is widely used as an important raw material in the polymer industry thanks to its high dehydration temperature. Used intensively in the textile and polymer sectors, Zinc Borate is also widely utilized in the wood preservation sector in order to prevent the formation of pests, such as fungi and insects. Produced using boron and boron products, Zinc Borate addresses every aspect of life by bringing safer, durable, long-lasting and economical products into living spaces.

Delaying flames from spreading throughout areas, Zinc Borate enables the creation of safe spaces. In the event of a fire, it helps minimize a loss of life and property and earns some time before the first response to a fire. Produced with boron and boron-based products which do not pose any threat to human health, Zinc Borate provides more durable and longer-lasting use compared to chemical products. In line with European Union legislation, many countries have limited the use of chemical flame-retardant products and have replaced them with Zinc Borate.
