We are leading supplier of zircon sand, which is composed mainly of zirconium silicate zro2. further, the mineral due to hardness, durability and chemical inertness, zircon persists in sedimentary deposits and is a common constituent of most sands.
The vast majority of the zircon used in industry today originates in these sand and gravel deposits, from which the purest zircon is extracted and refined to be used as zirconium metals. Less pure deposits are used in the form of stabilized zirconia for refractories and ceramic products.
Chemours Florida zircon sands have applications in many industries, such as foundry, precision investment casting, refractory, ceramic, glass, welding rod, and zirconium metal. Each grade of Florida zircon sand is available in 22.7-kg (50-lb) multiwall paper bags, semi-bulk (2 ton or 4 ton) bags, or in bulk hopper cars or trucks
ZOC, zirconium oxychloride (ZrOCl 2, 8H 2 O): ZOC is the first chemical product derived from processing zircon sand ores. It is the starting point for the manufacture of all other zirconium chemicals or high-purity zirconium dioxides and also can be used directly in applications like TiO 2 pigment coating.
Additional information on Zircon Flour The main applications for zircon sand are in ceramics, refractories, TV glass and the production of zirconium oxides (zirconias) and zirconium chemicals. The production of glaze emulsions in the ceramics industry was the greatest consumer in 2008 at around 600,000mts.
