i'm unclear about what this is. (Borium)
I googled it but this is all I get: Borium
is a generic name for tungsten carbide
crystals embedded in a carrier material, usually used to provide traction for horses.
Borium usually comes in the form of steel or brass tubing with a matrix of tungsten carbide crystals in it, coatings, and on the head of nails for use in and on horseshoes.
I'm just not clear about how this works? Is it a chemical reaction to the snow?? Like... when you salt snow it melts?? We don't get snow here... but i'm interested to know what/how this works!
