Zr (zirconium) Compound

Zirconium compounds are ceramics that feature high heat resistance, high strength, a high degree of toughness, electric insulation, low thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance.
Since we started dealing in mineral sands in 1952 for the first time in Japan, we at Iwatani have been involved in the mineral sand business as the industry-leading company.
We deal in a wide variety of products from mineral ores to compounds, including zircon sands, desiliconized zirconia, stabilized zirconia, and zirconium compounds.
