Zirconium silicate Bead


Zirconium silicate bead/ Zirconium Grinding Bead

Produced by two different melting and sintering method, Ball-tec® BZS is a grinding medium of high performance and low cost.

Zirconium silicate, also zirconium orthosilicate, ZrSiO4, is a chemical compound, a silicate of zirconium. It occurs in nature as zircon, a silicate mineral. Powdered zirconium silicate is also known as zircon flour.

Zirconium silicate is usually colorless, but impurities induce various colorations. It is insoluble in water, acids, alkali and aqua regia. Hardness is 7.5 on the Mohs scale.
