High-purity crystalline zirconium...
High-purity crystalline zirconium rods are produced by the iodination method and smelting. The purity can be Zr+Hf≥99.98%, Hf≤0.025%/3%, with low hafnium (250ppm, or 0.025%). Usually used for zirconium-based amorphous, semiconductor, and optical coatings. HM provides customized High Purity Zirconium Crystal Bars with the shortest lead time and the best price.

The high purity 99.98% zirconium crystal bar with low hafnium can be used in nuclear reactors. The zirconium crystal bar is the raw material of high-purity of zirconium sheet, zirconium wire, and zirconium sputtering target.
Zirconium is considered quite sensitive due to its application in nuclear reactors. However, Zr is highly corrosion resistant with its dense oxidized surface, the same as Ti but even better. There is about 2% of Hf in Zirconium by nature, and it's considered harmless for most applications except for nuclear projects. Separation of Zr and Hf is quite difficult and usually, people don't conduct the separation for commercial use.
