    Zirconium is a chemical element with the symbol Zr and an atomic number 40. It is a lustrous, gray-white, strong transition metal that resembles titanium. Zirconium is used as an alloying agent due to its high corrosion resistance. It is never found as a native metal. It is obtained mainly from the mineral zircon, which can be purified by chlorine. Zirconium was first isolated in an impure form in 1824 by Jöns Jakob Berzelius. It is corrosion-resistant and is utilized extensively by the chemical industry, where corrosive agents are used. Zirconium is routinely found with some level of hafnium since the separation of the two elements is difficult. It is a highly flammable solid and a dust explosion hazard.

    Physical Properties of Zirconium Powder

    Zr crystal bar turnings, Zr lump, Zr sponge, Zr various powder granulations, Zr tablets, Zr foil, Zr plate, Zr wire, and Zr rod.

    Zirconium Powder Applications

    a) Because of zirconium’s excellent resistance to corrosion, it is often used as an alloying agent in materials that are exposed to corrosive agents, such as surgical appliances, explosive primers, vacuum tube getters, and filaments.
    b) 90% of all zirconium produced is used in nuclear reactors because of its low neutron-capture cross-section and corrosion resistance. Zirconium alloys are used in space vehicle parts to resist heat, an essential quality given the extreme heat associated with atmospheric reentry.
    c) Zirconium is also a component in some abrasives, such as grinding wheels and sandpaper.
    d) Zirconium is used in weapons such as the BLU-97/B combined effects bomb for incendiary effect.
    e) Zirconium in the oxidized form is also used in dentistry for the teeth’ crowning because of its biocompatibility, strength, and appearance.
    f) High-temperature parts such as combustors, blades, and vanes in modern jet engines and stationary gas turbines are protected by thin ceramic layers.  That reduces the metal temperatures and keep them from undergoing (too) extensive deformation, which could result in early failure. These are necessary for the most modern gas turbines driven to ever higher firing temperatures to produce more electricity at less CO2. These ceramic layers are usually composed of a mixture of zirconium and yttrium oxide.
