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.
