Boron fibres are synthetic fibres, produced using Boron deposited (by chemical
vapor-deposition techniques) onto a core fibers in two ways:
Thermal Decomposition of a Boron Hydride.
His method uses low temperatures and carbon coated glass fibers are
used as a substrate. The Boron deposited fibers are weak due to lack of
adhesive forces between the Boron and the core and less dense due to
entrapped gases.

Reduction of Boron Halide
This method utilizes Hydrogen gas to reduce Boron trihalide, using very
high temperatures. For this reason a refractory material is necessitated to
be used as a substrate. These use Tungsten resulting in very heavy and
costly fibers. The fibers are of high uniform density, uniform quality and
high strength. This method has outweighed the thermal decomposition
one, despite of high weight and cost.
