Are you in the need to buy hexagonal boron nitride, common referred to as “hBn”? Here at Grolltex we have completed qualification, and released for production, the largest commercial manufacturing facility in North America for graphene complement material, single layer ‘hexagonal Boron Nitride’ (or hBN).
While providing some very desirable advanced characteristics of its own (such as enhancing fire retardance and scratch resistance to many basic materials), combining single layer hBN with graphene can mean exponential performance improvements for the conductive graphene layer and consequently, far superior futuristic nanotechnology devices. Semiconductor makers are already applying for patents that consist of the two single layer materials being used together.
All of our products at Grolltex are fabricated and packaged in a Class 1000 cleanroom. Adhering to our strict procedures and processes allows us to achieve high-yield, high-quality CVD graphene and hexagonal Boron Nitride(hBN) production, resulting in exceptional graphene monolayer material quality at an affordable price. Every batch of graphene and hBN is analyzed meticulously and comes with a datasheet unique to your specific batch of graphene, so that the customer always knows the metrics that are most important to them. The individual specification sheet provided for each unit of graphene or hBN sold by Grolltex contains optical images of graphene from the batch transferred onto Si/SiO2, FET mobility on Si/SiO2, sheet resistance, and Raman spectra. We are happy to provide the batch-specific sampling spectra txt/scv files to our customers upon request. Each graphene or hBN sheet is vacuum sealed in a clean and inert nitrogen environment. Secondary packaging of our graphene material under positive nitrogen atmosphere in a moisture-proof, light-proof, static-proof cleanroom bag ensures prolonged shelf-life when not in use by the customer.
How hexagonal boron nitride can be used
Because this is one of the most stable structural manifestations of boron nitride, existing as a thin film, single layer hexagonal boron nitride has a number of very useful properties which can be used in many ways. For instance, it is very stable at high temperatures, it has extremely high strength and a low dielectric constant, and it is chemically very stable. These properties serve monolayer hBN well as a component to be used in light emission applications, electrical insulation, or in situations where extraordinary lubrication is called for, especially in unusual environments. Graphene and single layer hBN have a number of structural similarities, both belong to the family of layered materials which have structures consisting of a hexagonal lattice. Both materials have very similar interlayer distances, which accounts for them having similar properties that have great potential for use in creating specialized products.
