Boric Acid Uses
Boric acid is an extremely versatile compound, which can be used in many different applications, from medical uses to lubricant. A few examples include:
- Medical uses: This compound is commonly used as an antiseptic and antibacterial to treat acne, athlete’s feet or other skin conditions. Diluted solutions can also be used as an eye wash or to treat mild cases of ear infection.
- Wood Preservation: Boric acid solutions are popular treatments for dry and wet rot in timber, as well as protection against fungal infections. This compound is also available in gel form or injectable paste to treat wood severely affected by rot, avoiding the need to replace. For wood used in marine environments, products containing high concentrations of boric acid can be used to prevent algae and slime growth.
- Insecticide: Boric acid can be used to control many insects, from ants to cockroaches. It basically works as a poison, affecting the insect’s metabolism. In addition, in a dry powder form, boric acid can be very abrasive to the insect but still considered safe for household use.
- Lubricant: Dissolved in oil or petroleum, boric acid forms a colloidal suspension, with remarkable lubricant properties for metal surfaces.
- pH buffer in swimming pools: Boric acid is a weak acid widely used to regulate the pH in swimming pools.
