Zirconium Metal

Zirconium metal is available in form of powders, chunks, ingots, lumps, pieces, sheets, foils, particles, slugs, cylinders, rods, cubes and targets. It is light gray metal or gray amorphous powder, which is insoluble in water, but soluble in hot concentrated acid, hydrofluoric acid, aqua regia and concentrated sulfuric acid. Zirconium powder would ignite in air when high temperature and turns out zirconium dioxide. Zirconia is raw material for ceramics, grinding granules,  zirconium oxide ZrO2 fiber, plastic and rubber. Zirkonium powder is with purity 99% normally. The purity of sponge Zr powder is 99.4%. However the purity of zirconium lump reach 99.9%.

Applications

Zirconium powder is for preparation of nuclear industry, corrosion resistance alloy, flashlight and fireworks. It also apply to deoxidizing agent for metallurgy and chemical reagents.

The standard size of zirconium slugs are 1.2*3.5mm, 2*3mm and 1.5mm*3mm. The thick of zirconium foils are 0.2mm and 0.3mm usually. However other sizes could be customizable. Both two products are for vacuum coating, which are sputtering targets.
