I. Zircon sand
Let's talk about zircon (zircon), which is the most important zirconium-bearing mineral. It is the most widely distributed, most abundant, and most abundant type of zirconium mineral. It is a kind of mineral mainly composed of zirconium silicate. . Zircon sand is the main raw material for the preparation of zirconium, hafnium and various zirconium products. It has the characteristics of high melting point, low thermal conductivity and small linear expansion coefficient. It is widely used in ceramics, metallurgy, casting and refractory materials industries. Its chemical composition: The theoretical composition of zircon sand: ZrO2: 67.1%, SiO2: 32.9%. Sometimes contains MnO, CaO, MgO, Fe2O3, Al2O3 mixed. Various colors, such as purple, brown, light yellow, light red, green, gray, colorless and other diamond, hardness: (Mohs') hardness of 7.5 ~ 8, specific gravity: 4.4 ~ 4.8, melting point: 2340 ~ 2550 °C, linear Thermal expansion coefficient: 5.0×10-6m/°C(200~1000°C), heat shock resistance, good stability. Conventionally, people usually divide zircon sand into 66, 65, 63, and 60 degrees according to the content of ZrO2 (useful component) in the zircon sand. The zircon sand is generally 80-120 mesh; the industry will fineness In the 325 mesh (about 40 microns) zircon sand is called zirconium powder, the fineness of more than 2000 is called zirconium silicate, worldwide distribution: zircon sand in various igneous rocks as an accessory mineral output, In the alkaline rocks and alkaline pegmatites can be integrated into the ore; zircon is also often enriched in the placer. From the perspective of geographical distribution of resources, it is mainly in the hands of Australia (44.6%), South Africa (25%), Ukraine, India, and Brazil. Five countries account for 86% of the world's zirconium resources, and the monopoly of resources is very obvious. China's zirconium reserves account for less than 1% of the world's zirconium reserves. With the further exploration of the exploration work, the production of zirconium in Mozambique, Indonesia, Madagascar, India and Vietnam showed an increasing trend and made a marginal contribution to the global supply of zirconium. At the company level, global zirconium supply is dominated by Australia's ILUKA, Rio Tinto and South Africa's Exxaro.

Zircon sand is the first raw material for the production of zirconium products, which can be used to produce zirconium silicate and zirconyl oxychloride. Zirconium oxychloride is a zirconium product produced from zirconium carbonate, zirconium sulfate, zirconium dioxide, zirconium oxide composite, zirconium metal, etc. The main raw material, composite zirconia, is the main raw material for the production of zirconia structural ceramics. Its upstream and downstream relationships are as follows:
Zircon sand industrial use is as follows:

No. Industrial USES Accounting
1 ceramics 56.11%
2 Zirconia and zirconium chemicals. 17.78%
3 Refractory industry 10.56%
4 Foundry industry 8.89%
5 TV glass 3.89%
6 Other industries 2.78%

Zirconium silicate.
Zirconium silicate is a fine powder produced by the process of wet ball milling and dry process. Major in ceramic body when brightener and opacifying agent used, opacifying agent used in the us, for example, ZrO2, ZrSiO4, SeO2, TiO2 and ZnO ZrSiO4 is the only natural crystalline state, others are the chemical reaction of chemical products. Zirconium in rich value of 0.2% in the earth's crust, abundant reserves, and natural mineral are mostly in the form of zircon sand, research so far, there is no natural crystal mineral was applied to the opacifying agent, this is, of course, by its own structure reasons. Zirconium silicate in the glaze ceramic billet, therefore, have the following main functions: (1) opacifying (dark), whitening, (2) to strengthen the body strength and (3) strengthen the resistance to hydrolysis, (4) strengthen the hardness and wear resistance. ZrSiO4 in ceramic glaze unsubstitutable role in the conclusion, until today's practice has proved that find a substitute for zirconium silicate is still a very difficult job. Zirconium silicate market has many kinds, you buy the zirconium silicate belongs to what content. Based on 66 levels, with senior ATO wet sand ball mill of zirconium silicate as the standard, it is divided into: SiO2 < 32%, Al2O3 < 1%, ZrO2 > 65.3%, Fe2O3 < 0.1%, TiO2 < 0.1%, impurity content sum not more than 1%. How can you get the full analysis of zirconium silicate? What method can get the real content of zirconium silicate, we compared the current chemical analysis method of zirconium silicate, chemical analysis method for determination of zirconium (hafnium and zirconium XRF measuring the amount of the difference between the amount of (hafnium)

Three, zircon powder
Usually zirconium powder refers to zircon sand milled to 325 mesh after a certain process. It is used in the ceramic frit and refractory industry. Its ceramic frit is mainly used in zirconium white frit and inkjet frit, but in zirconium. The mechanism of the white frit and the inkjet frit differs. The difference in zirconium powder used by everyone is also great. Zirconium white frit requires not only enough zirconium content, but also iron, titanium and aluminum content. The content of iron and titanium is high, the glaze is easy to yellow, the aluminum content is high, and the glaze opacity is easily deteriorated. The requirements for iron and titanium content of the frit are low, which is mainly used to help the color development. Therefore, many grades of zirconium powders have appeared on the market. The current detection of zirconium in Shandong is mainly based on EDTA complexometric titration. The zirconium content was not tested for each batch, resulting in a rather unstable product batch quality.

In the market, the amount of zirconium sand was analyzed by chemical analysis.
