Nickel Boron (NiB) Master Alloy

KBM Affilips manufactures a variety of master alloys in many different physical forms, including aluminum based master alloys, zinc based master alloys, lead based master alloys, nickel based master alloys, and cobalt based master alloys, to name a few. Nickel Boron (NiB) master alloy is one such product offered by KBM Affilips.


Composition of NiB15

Boron 15%
Nickel Balance


Nickel Boron 15% is predominantly used as a high temperature brazing filler material, in the manufacturing of wear resistant hard surfacing alloys, and as nitrogen scavenger/deoxidizer in nickel superalloy production.

The presence of boron improves the fluidity of this master alloy. Boron improves wear resistance in special nickel steels by increasing their hardenability. In some cases, NiB is utilized as deoxidizer in the production of copper nickel alloys.

KBM Affilips supplies nickel/cobalt/iron based additives in lump form for the iron, steel and super alloy industry. The company produces lumps of defined size through crushing, and the lump shape is generally specific to the alloy to be manufactured.

Applications of NiB

The applications of NiB are as follows:

  • As deoxidizer for CuNi alloys
  • Improving fluidity of nickel alloys
  • As nitrogen scavenger and deoxidizer in super alloys
  • In wear resistant Ni steel production
  • Alloying boron into amorphous alloys
