Hex-Boron Nitride ( HBN ) Powder Nano

Hexagonal Boron Nitride (HBN) is widely used to reduce friction in industrial applications, but it has only recently been adapted to bullets. The latest and greatest bullet-coating material, HBN is ultra-slippery, goes on clear (not powdery), and will not combine with moisture or potentially harm barrel steel. HBN also can withstand extremely high temps (1000° C). Many users feel HBN is cleaner to work with than Moly or WS2, and has fewer health risks.


The “nano” size particle (70 nm) is smaller than the pores of your skin and can be absorbed through contact. If you breathe a cloud of this in, it will easily coat your entire airway and lungs which is not in a human’s best interest. Take proper contact precautions. Use a fine filter mask, use in well ventilated, down draft area. Wear disposable gloves and long sleeve shirts when using this product. Please understand plain anatomy and physiology. Take precaution, plan well, play safe.

This particle size is highly reactive to water vapor in the air. Keep lid closed at all times to help prevent clumping. Humidity will affect its dispersion performance and using effects, therefore, this product should be sealed and stored in cool, dry room and it should not be exposure to air.


Watch this method for a new way of applying HBN to your bullets!



Hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN) is also known as White Graphite, has similar (hexagonal) crystal structure as of Graphite. This crystal structure provides excellent lubricating properties. hBN is much superior to Graphite and has following characteristics:

•Excellent Lubricating Properties due to low Coefficient of Friction at 0.15 to 0.70
•Good Chemical Inertness
•Electrical Insulator
•Thermal Conductor (result: better heat dissipation)
•High Temperature Stability, 1000o C in Air, 1400o C in Vacuum and 1800o C in Inert gas
•Low Thermal Expansion
•Low Dielectric Constant
•High Load bearing properties
•Non-Wetting: hBN is not wetted by Glasses, Salts and (most) metals, therefore it provides strong resistance to chemical attack Easy Machineability (in hot pressed state). Complex shapes can be machined from hot pressed structure.

These are typically applied by tumbling/impact media. Either steel or ceramic is fine. Just as long as it is clean media and your bullets are free from oil prior to applying. EXCELLENT SUBSTITUE FOR MOLY OR WS2
