    Boric Acid

    Boric Acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, orthoboric acid and acidum boricum, is a weak, monobasic Lewis acid of boron. Boric Acid and the borate salts (Na+, K+ in particular), are well known and have long been utilized in the oilfield in fracturing services.

    Borates perform exceptionally well in guar slurries as crosslinkers in water-based fracturing fluids, notably in mid-to-high pH fluid bases.

    Boric Acid and the salts are also well known in many industries as flame retardants, wood preservatives, metallurgy, adhesives, pharmaceuticals and insect pest control.
