What’s zirconium-nitride?

Zirconium Nitride

The inorganic compound (ZrN), has many crystal structures that change with its composition. Due to its properties, it can be used in various ways. ZrN and its alloy compounds have been identified in Zr-N’s Zr3N4 alloy system. Not only do they have great chemical properties, but also can be used to make cryogenic gauges or junctions. they can be used to make metal-based transistors as well and in integrated electric coils three-dimensionally. The ZrN compounds have superior wear resistances, oxidation resistances, and corrosion resistance than pure zirconium. Additionally, they have a higher critical temperature for superconductivity, which makes them highly useful and may be used as superconductors. value.

Zirconium Nitride properties

ZrN has a room temperature resistivity 12.0 uO*cm. It also has a temperature coefficient of resistance of 5.6*10-8.8 O*cm/K. There is also a superconducting transitiontemperature of 10.4 K. And the relaxed lattice parameter of 0.4575nm. ZrN, a single-crystal ZrN has a hardness of 22.7+-1.7 GPa. The elastic modulus is 450 GPa. ZrN that has been grown via physical vapordeposition (PVD), is light in color and similar to elemental.

Zirconium nitride preparation

By using a combination of zirconium oxide gel and carbon black, you can make Zirconium Nitride Nanopowders.



The zirconium (chemical formula ZrN), powder is of high purity and has a large surface area. It has high surface activity and is used in thermostable ceramics, as well as plasticizing ceramics.

Use of zirconium-nitride



Zirconium nitride

This is a ceramic material with a hardness similar to that of titanium nitride. It also has refractory properties similar to cement. This makes it ideal for laboratory crucibles, cermet, and refractory materials. It is commonly used in coating parts such as medical equipment, automotive, aerospace, and parts that are at high risk of corrosion and wear. Al alloying creates an electronic structure from the local cubohedral bondsymmetry of cubic ZrN. As the Al content rises, it distorts, creating more complex bonds and higher hardness.

As a hard coating on drills and burs zirconium-nitride can be used. This coating is deposited via physical vapor deposition. Tools coated with zirconium oxide nitride are ideal for non-ferrous metal operations, including the machining aluminum alloys and brasses.

Zirconium-nitride is also a good choice for lining hydrogen peroxide fuel tank in airplanes and rockets.
