3M™ Boron Carbide Blasting Nozzles exhibit minimal wear due to the extreme hardness of the boron carbide material used in their construction. The durability of the nozzles offers outstanding cost benefits thanks to extreme wear resistance.
3M™ Boron Carbide Blasting Nozzles have a proven track record over decades of use, due both to the extreme wear resistance of boron carbide and to our precision manufacturing processes. We offer a wide range of blasting nozzles made of boron carbide, an extremely hard and abrasion-resistant ceramic material. Used correctly, 3M boron carbide blasting nozzles have exceptionally long service life – even in applications using extremely hard abrasives such as corundum or silicon carbide. When costs per blasting time are compared, 3M boron carbide blasting nozzles may offer a more cost-effective alternative to nozzles made of silicon carbide or hard metal.We offer a wide variety of standard nozzles for common industry operations and customized options for highly specialized applications such as automated sand blasting machines. We provide a one-stop supplier experience from raw material to final part, including custom nozzle development for your unique requirements.Standard NozzlesThe 3M boron carbide standard nozzle program covers a wide range of common application fields, giving you an easy-to-use solution where increasing requirements for reliability, process stability and performance are your benchmark. We offer a variety of nozzle types, including side-firing, bow-nozzle and blast heads.Venturi NozzlesVenturi nozzles offer optimal removal rates due to a combination of high particle acceleration rates and low air consumption due to their internal construction. Compared to standard straight blasting units, venturi nozzles are the best choice for effective and high surface area preparation, e.g. for subsequent painting and coating operations in the building and construction industries.Fine Nozzles3M boron carbide dental and fine jet nozzles are manufactured using a unique injection molding process. They are used for a variety of operations, including: lapping of machine components; glass matting and engraving; and cleaning and modeling of denture constructions. For dent
