Fused Zirconium Oxide
Fused zirconium oxide produced by the fusion of zircon sand leading to the dissociation of zirconium oxide and silica at high temperature. The zirconia is reduced to zirconium carbide before roasting in air to produce zirconium oxide. The zirconium oxide can then be cast into a single ingot before crushing or be blown from the surface of the furnace to produce zirconium oxide bubble. Both products can then be milled to the required particle size depending on the application. Zircomet supplies both fused and crushed and bubble zirconium oxide and we are able to supply powder sizes to standard or customer specifications.
