Agricultural Boron-Wooden Boron:
For the agricultural boron-wooden boron product manufactured in the pilot facility set up by virtue of the protocol signed by and between our Institute and the METU Department of Chemical Engineering, the patent certificate was acquired and submitted to the company A.Ş..
The report containing technical data relating to the production process was made available to the Eti General Directorate of Mining, whereby commercial production under the name Etidot-67 was launched at the 8-thousand facility set up within the Bandırma Directorate of Boron Mining.
For zinc borate synthesized under the project run in collaboration with METU Department of Chemical Engineering and produced at the pilot facility set up within the same department, the patent certificate was acquired, a licence contract was concluded whereby the right of production was granted to BM Bor Teknolojileri Araştırma ve Geliştirme Şirketi and MELOS A.Ş. Besides meeting the domestic demand, the operating scope also covers export.
Under the support of our Institute, BORTEK Bor Teknolojileri Ltd. Şti manufactures boron nitride of nano size. While meeting the order-based domestic demand, the product is also employed in the production of engine oil additives developed by the company. By virtue of the protocol signed with the company, research and implementation efforts are run with a view to extending the use of boron nitride. While boron nitride coating processes are carried out at the BOREN Competence Centre for Boron Coating set up in the Atılım University, research and implementation efforts for the use of boron nitride as a energy-saving solid lubricant in oil additives are in progress.
Under the support of our Institute,PAVEZYUM Kimya Sanayi Tic. A.Ş. manufactures 98% pure crystallized elemental boron with 90% and 95% amorphous elemental boron. Besides product development campaigns, the company also runs efforts to grow its market potential. The company's target is to manufacture 99% pure elemental amorphous boron.
Within the scope of the project run under our Institute's support, PAVEZYUM Kimya Sanayi Tic. A.Ş has successfully manufactured this conductor. Production flow is on order basis.
Since its foundation, our Institute has been in consistent collaboration with the companies Çağ Mühendislik and YALİZ Yapı for the production of cellulose insulators. Both companies currently manufacture cellulose insulators in pulp form. The process of transforming the product into sheet form by the company YALİZ Yalıtım is in progress.
