Zirconium Micron Powder
Zirconium micron powder has many important applications in various industries. Zirconium is a chemical element whose symbol is Zr, its atomic number is 40 and its atomic weight is 91.22u. It is a very hard and resistant metal, and is one of the most abundant elements in the Earth's crust and has isotopes 90, 91, 94 and 96. It is located in group 4 of the periodic table. It was discovered in 1789 by a German chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth when he analyzed pallet rocks from the Ceylon regions. It is known as a transition metal which has a characteristic bright gray-white color. It is resistant to corrosion and as a hard metal, it resembles steel. It is used in the production of nuclear energy, and because it has great visual appeal and great refractive power, it is often used as a gemstone in jewelry pieces. In the medical industry, as it is a bio-inert material, it is used in joint replacement and in the dental industry it is used together with yttrium for the construction of dental implant prostheses and abutments.
