Zirconium (Zr) Metal

Zirconium (Zr) Metal is a lustrous, gray-white, strong transition metal that resembles titanium and is very corrosion resistant. It is a highly flammable solid and a dust explosion hazard. Zirconium does not absorb neutrons, making it an ideal material for nuclear power stations, where more than 90% of zirconium is used.

Typical Applications

Zirconium’s resistance to corrosion makes it a good alloying agent in materials exposed to corrosive agents, such as surgical appliances, explosive primers, vacuum tube getters, and filaments. Zirconium alloys are used in space vehicle parts for their resistance to heat; an important quality given the extreme heat associated with atmospheric reentry. Zirconium is also a component in some abrasives, such as grinding wheels and sandpaper. Zirconium is used in weapons such as the BLU-97/B Combined Effects Bomb for incendiary effect.

Packaging Options

Dry, in tin cans of max. 3 kg. capacity. Or, as an aqueous suspension in PE bottles, water content of 30% min.
