Zircon Sand Descriptions

Zircon sandZircon sand, this glassy mineral has found its place in many industrial applications worldwide, starting from ceramics and refractory tiles to a range of high-tech applications. Zircon compounds have very low toxicity and are not perceived as a potential environmental hazard. They are even said to have some medicinal properties and are now increasingly preferred in the manufacture of food products and pharmaceuticals too.

Zircon’s exceptional qualities of hardness and durability make it a must-use for the manufacture of ceramics and refractory tiles and also for a range of other high-tech applications such as armor plating on military aircraft, heat shield in space shuttles, and potentially as solid oxide fuel cells in hydrogen-powered vehicles in many industrial and chemical applications.
