Category: Zirconium

Zirconium is a very strong, malleable, ductile, lustrous silver-gray metal, similar to hafnium and titanium. It is flammable in powder form, and highly resistant to corrosion and heat. Zirconium is a high corrosion-resistant metal that is us used for many products. Some include pumps, valves, nuclear applications, chemical processing, reactor vessels, heat exchangers and more.

Advanced Refractory Metal is a leading supplier of zirconium products. We offer low pricing and great lead times on all our materials, and we’re capable of supplying custom materials per any specs/drawings you provide us with.

Why is Zirconium a Transition Metal

0 Comment

When of sufficient purity, zirconium is soft and ductile. It has good corrosion resistance and low absorption capacity for thermal neutrons. These properties are desirable in materials used for certain parts of nuclear reactors. The great increase in production of zirconium since 1945 has been the direct result of construction of nuclear reactors. Zirconium is […]
