Zirconium Powder

  • Ceramics. Many functional ceramics use zirconia or yttria-stabilized zirconia in their production.
  • Pigments and glazes. Various pigments use zirconia for its unique optical properties and general resilience, as do the glazes used for porcelain firing.
  • Artificial jewelry. Zirconia powders serve a key role in the production of certain forms of artificial jewelry; specifically, cubic zirconia diamond simulants are produced primarily with this material.
  • Abrasives. A variety of abrasives utilize zirconia powders in their composition, including special dispersions used to polish semiconductors.
  • Fire-retardant. This material is often used as an additive or coating to offer fire-retardant benefits to textiles, plastics, and other compounds.
  • Pyro-optics. Due to certain unique sensitivities of zirconia powders, they can be used to produce pyro-optic devices.
  • Electronics. Many different electronic devices and components utilize zirconia of one sort or the other in their manufacture, including high-capacity capacitors, electrodes, piezoelectric elements, ion exchangers, solid dielectrics, and more.
  • Optical storage. Like many nanomaterials and micro powders, zirconium powders have seen extensive research for their potential as a material for optical storage. This builds on a long history of zirconia as a digital storage media.
  • Displays. Certain displays utilize zirconia or zirconia-yttria in their manufacture. The material is also used more broadly for its optical properties in stereo television glasses, light control devices, and other light-sensitive devices.
  • Insulation. Several forms of insulation use zirconia powders, for its general wear-resistance and its unique electric properties.
  • High-stress components. The resilience of zirconia makes it an ideal raw material for certain high-stress components, such as smelting crucibles, bearing nozzles, etc.
  • Energy storage. Both forms of zirconia powder see usage in fuels, solid fuel cells for batteries, and other types of energy storage.
