Borotron® UH/HM


Borotron UH015/030/050 and Borotron HM015/030/050 are boron loaded PE-(U)HMW grades, specifically developed for neutron shielding purposes in nuclear installations and medical applications.

The high hydrogen content of PE-(U)HMW makes it very suitable for slowing down fast neutrons to lower energy thermal (slow) neutrons, which are then absorbed by the added boron compound. Whereas both PE-HMW and PE-UHMW are suitable for neutron shielding, PE-UHMW is often preferred because of its better deformation behaviour at high temperatures and its superior impact strength and wear resistance.
