Boric acid used to provide heat protection?

  1. Hi,

    Has anyone heard of a layer of boric acid being used as a heat shield? I know it is often used in solution and other composites to act as a fire retardant, but what I'm looking for is any reference to boric acid, by itself, being used as an insulator. Maybe like a layer of boric acid protecting the components of a flight data recorder?

    Heard of anything like this?
