Overview of Zirconium Silicide ZrSi2 Powder

Zirconium (IV) silicide is an inorganic compound composed of zirconium and zirconium atoms.

Zirconium silicide or zirconium disilicide, chemical formula ZrSi2, is a steel gray rhombus lustrous crystal with a relative density of 4.8822. Zirconium silicide is insoluble in water, mineral acids and aqua regia, but soluble in hydrofluoric acid.

 Zirconium silicide ZrSi2 powder (CAS 12039-90-6) has high melting point, high corrosion resistance, high oxidation resistance, good electrical conductivity, high temperature ductility, and the intermediate phase of binary alloy system.

Zirconium silicide is used as raw material powder for fine ceramics. Zirconium disilicide ZrSi2, molecular weight 147.39, density 4.88, melting point: 1620°C (1790°C), lattice constant: a=0.372nm, b=1.476nm, c=0.367nm. Microhardness (kg/mm2): 1063, heat of formation (kJ/mol): 62.8. Gray square crystalline powder, stable under normal temperature and pressure. Refractory metal silicides. Low resistivity (about 10-7Ω•m), high hardness. The preparation method is mainly made by depositing a mixture of metal and silicon by sintering. Deposition methods mainly include: evaporation, sputtering, electroplating, chemical vapor deposition, etc.

Physical and chemical properties of zirconium silicide ZrSi2 powder

As a zirconium-silicon intermetallic compound, ZrSi2 is a ceramic material with high hardness, high melting point, high electrical conductivity, high thermal conductivity and good thermal shock resistance at high temperature. In view of the superior physical and chemical properties of silicon-zirconium-intermetallic compounds, ZrSi2 is a structural material or a new type of engineering material that can be used as a high-temperature corrosion medium.

Application of Zirconium Silicide ZrSi2 Powder

ZrSi2 can be used as fine ceramic raw powder for making crucibles or semiconductor thin films.

One of the most important applications of zircon is the production of white pigment impermeable agents for surface glazes and pigments in the tile and ceramic industry. Refractory applications are also a common use of zircon in the steel and glass industries for making refractory bricks and profiles. Due to its high melting point (2200°C), zircon is used as a casting sand for moulds and as a "flour" for grinding, especially in warmer applications where preservation of casting surface quality is important. An area of expertise known as "investment casting" is the growing use of zircon in the industry. Zirconium is also used in the production of zirconium oxide, zirconium metal and zirconium chemicals.
