Boron carbide nozzle is, as the name suggests, a nozzle made of boron carbide, which is one of the most complex materials in the world, so it is ideal for sandblasting nozzles and guns.
CY Spray Boron Carbide Nozzle
The CY Spray Boron Carbide Nozzle features a multi-layer construction with an optimized nozzle design to provide effective blasting performance and protect the boron carbide liner. Our nozzle is lightweight and has high wear resistance. The boron carbide nozzle is the best choice for sandblasting guns, especially in stationary applications and when using aggressive blasting media such as corundum (aluminum oxide). Compared to other lining materials, the full boron carbide lining allows for longer nozzle life and is, therefore, very economical, especially in professional blasting operations and continuous use.
Our boron carbide blast nozzles with natural rubber sheaths are available in different nozzle diameters from 6 to 10 mm and utilize the venturi effect to achieve maximum blast media exit velocity. This positively impacts the blasting performance and, therefore, the top surface finish.
When to Use Boron Carbide Nozzle
Boron carbide nozzles can be used any time aluminum oxide or silicon carbide is used as the blasting media.
The three most popular materials currently used for nozzles are tungsten carbide, boron carbide, and silicon carbide. Boron carbide nozzles are the hardest of the three, followed by silicon and tungsten carbide. Hardness is necessary to withstand the wear and tear that blast nozzle liners suffer from the abrasives.
However, the greater the hardness, the more brittle the material. This is why boron carbide nozzles need to be handled with care. When we ship B4C nozzles, we use a lot of packing material to ensure safe transport. Do not drop, throw, hit or abuse the boron carbide nozzle or it will be damaged.
