Zirconium Crystal Introduction:
We provide high purity zirconium crystal bars, usually with 1-2% hafnium (Hf) content, in two forms: one with low hafnium (250ppm, or 0.025%) or another with high hafnium. Both Zr and Hf share many properties and can be applied to the nuclear industries; however, they contain different properties in neutron capture. As a result, they must be separated through liquid extraction or distillation of molten salt. Both of these processes are expensive and can cause the market price for low Hf content zirconium to cost 50-100% more as compared to Hf zirconium.
Zirconium Crystal Applications:
The high purity of zirconium crystal bars is much better than that of normal zirconium sponges, making them [crystal bars] ideal additives for specific special alloys and materials in the process of creating high purity zirconium sputtering targets. Zirconium crystal bars were also used for commercial purposes before the magnesium reduction process was developed.
Zirconium Crystal Specification:
Typical impurity content of our high purity zirconium
*Contents of C, N and O is not available
*Concentrations of other metal elements are too low to be determined.
Stanford Advanced Materials also provides 702, 705 Zr materials in forms of tubes, sheets, rods, wire and customized shapes.
Zirconium Crystal Packaging:
Our high purity zirconium crystal bars are carefully handled to minimize damage during storage and transportation and to preserve the quality of our products in their original condition.
