Technical Ceramics

As the world leader in high-performance ceramics, 3M™ has been producing boron carbide and silicon carbide (previously: TETRABOR® boron carbide blast nozzles and EKasic® silicon carbide blast nozzles) for decades. Through our ongoing research and material development program, and by watching the market, we have steadily expanded our blast nozzle range, and can offer products of first-class quality and technology. 3M™ Boron Carbide (B4C) and 3M™ Silicon Carbide (SiC) blast nozzles are now successfully used all over the world.

3M™ Boron Carbide (B4C) Blast Nozzles

3M™ Boron Carbide (B4C) Blast Nozzles pay off thanks to their extreme resistance. The boron carbide with a density of more than 2.50 g/cm3 offers clear advantages:

  • Outstanding cost benefits thanks to its extreme wear resistance
  • Low air consumption through minimal widening of the bore
  • Constant operating conditions and uniform blasting performance
  • Unrivalled service life with all blasting agents

3M™ Silicon Carbide (SiC) Blast Nozzles

3M™ Silicon Carbide (SiC) Blast Nozzles also offer a range of advantages:

  • Outstanding cost efficiency
  • Infrequent maintenance
  • Constant operating conditions and uniform blasting performance
