Zirconium Silicate is by far the most popular Opacifier for Glazes, giving ceramics an opaque white appearance.
Zirconium Silicate is one of the leading ceramic opacifiers used in the ceramic industry.
Zirconium Silicate is also used by the manufacturers of sanitary ware, who need finer texture and higher brightness.
End uses of Zirconium Silicate:
Zirconium Silicate is most commonly used in a variety of high temperature applications.
Zirconium Silicate is a very stable, hard, dense, and an excellent refractory material.
Zirconium Silicate is resistant to chemical attack and resistance to corrosion by acids, alkali materials, and seawater.
Zirconium Silicate is used in the manufacturing of bricks for working in high-temperature furnaces and ovens. Zirconium Silicate Bricks are ideal for such furnaces and ovens because they reflect heat and are not destroyed by high temperatures.
Zirconium Silicate is processed to remove undesirable materials and impurities to extract Zirconium Dioxide (Zirconia).
The several ways of extraction of Zirconia from Zircon are Chlorination, Alkali oxide decomposition, Lime fusion, and Plasma dissociation. Thus, most of its applications in Chemical Industries rely on these special properties of Zircon.
Zirconium Silicate is used to manufacture Zirconium Silicate Grinding Balls. The Zirconium Silicate Grinding Balls are high Wear Resistance Ceramic Grinding Beads.
Zirconium Silicate is used to manufacture Abrasive flap disc, grinding disc, cutting disc, etc.
Zirconium Silicate is used to coat welding electrodes to provide better thermal stability.
