Zirconium Metal

Zirconium metal is available in form of powders, chunks, ingots, lumps, pieces, sheets, foils, particles, slugs, cylinders 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. The purity of zirconium powder is 99%. The purity of sponge zirconium metal is 99.4%. However the purity of zirconium lump reach 99.9%.

Zirconium Metal

CAS No.: 7440-67-7 EINECS No.: 231-176-9 Molecular Formula: Zr Molecular Weight: 91.224
Melting Point: 1852℃ Boiling Point: 3577℃ Ignition Temperature: >200℃ Density: 6.51

Applications

Zirconium metal 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 standard thick of zirconium foils are 0.2mm and 0.3mm. The other sizes could be customizable. Both two products are for vacuum coating, which are sputtering targets.
