Zirconium Metal/ Sputtering Target

Zirconium Metal/ Sputtering Target

CAS #: 7440-67-7
Linear Formula: Zr
EC No.: 231-176-9

Product Details

Zirconium Metal is a silver-gray active metal with a molecular formula of Zr. The zirconium surface is easy to form an oxide film with a luster, so the appearance is similar to steel. It is corrosion-resistant, soluble in hydrofluoric acid and sulphuric acid. It reacts with non-metallic elements and many metal elements at high temperatures to form solid solution compounds.

Zirconium, like lithium and titanium, strongly absorbs gases such as nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen. When the temperature exceeds nine hundred degrees Celsius, zirconium can absorb nitrogen violently; under the condition of two degrees Celsius, one hundred grams of metal zirconium can absorb 871 liters of hydrogen, equivalent to more than 800,000 times of iron. Zirconium can also be used as a "vitamin" in the metallurgical industry to exert its powerful functions of deoxidation, nitrogen removal and desulfurization. As long as one thousandth of zirconium is added to the steel, the hardness and strength will increase dramatically. Zirconium-containing armor steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant steel are important materials for the manufacture of armored vehicles, tanks, cannons and bulletproof panels. . A zirconium alloy is a colored alloy formed by adding zirconium as a matrix to other elements. The main alloying elements are tin, antimony, iron, and the like. Zirconium alloy has good corrosion resistance, moderate mechanical properties, low atomic thermal neutron absorption cross section in high temperature and high pressure water and steam at 300-400 °C, good compatibility with nuclear fuel, and is widely used as water-cooled nuclear reactor. Core structure material.
