The glass powder Boruvit acts as a functional filler in coatings by its transparency, which stays neutral with any pigmentation. It ensures a longer lifetime for the coating due to the absorption of UV-radiation. Being a mechanically hard filler, it will increase scratch resistance and the particle shape will improve the adhesion and co-adhesion of coatings.

Boruvit is free from discoloring impurities. A low oil and water absorption contribute to cost savings in the formulation. By its chemical composition is is resistant to corrosion and weathering. Boruvit is primarily used in wood coatings and in heavy duty anticorrosion paints. Due to its high mechanic resitance Borvit is applied in coatings for extreme conditions as cargo holds in ships and trucks.
