What is Zirconium Silicide ZrSi2 Powder?

Introduction to Zirconium Silicide ZiSi2 Powder

Zirconium silicide

ZrSi2, or steel gray rhombic gloss crystal with chemical formula ZrSi2, has a relative density of 4.8822. Zirconium Silicide is not soluble or soluble with water, inorganic acid and aqua regia. It can however be soluble in hydrofluoric.

Zirconium siicide ZrSi2 powder’s physicochemical characteristics

The zirconium silica intermetallic compound ZrSi2 (zirconium-silicon) is a ceramic material having high hardness, high melting temperature, high conductivity and heat conductivity. ZrSi2 can also be used as high-temperature corrosion medium due to its superior chemical and physical properties.

Making Zirconium Silicide Zi2 powder

You can make zirconium silicide by heating a mix of silicon and zirconium powder under high temperature isolation.

The following steps can be used to make zirconium silicide Nanomaterial.

1. In a 20ml stainless Steel autoclave, add 5mmol of zirconia, 5mmol silica powder, 50mmol lithium and seal it. Place the heated autoclave inside an electric furnace with temperature control. The furnace’s heating rate should be set at 10 degrees per minute. Heat the furnace until it reaches 600F. Once the reaction cools to room temperature the autoclave will be open to get rid of the product, which is black sediment.

2. Following washing of reaction products with distilled water and then with dilute hydrochloric and anhydrous alcohol washing each time after washing, 60 were placed in the oven for drying four hours to get zirconium Silicide nanomaterials. This is based upon the preparation quality of zirconium oxide and the quality raw material used. It was determined that zirconium siliicide yield was 85%.

To make semiconductor films or crucibles, ZrSi2 is a good ceramic raw material.

Zr Zirconium can be used in various applications

The production of white pigment impervious agents and surface glazes for ceramics and tiles is one of the main uses of zircon. The common uses of zircon are in refractory, such as the fabrication of firebricks or shapes for the steel and the glass industries. Because of its high melting temperature (2200), zircalite can be used for casting sand and grinding “flour”, especially for warmer areas where the casting’s surface quality is critical. This is the area where zirconium has been used in increasing numbers. Also, zirconium can be used to produce zirconium metallics and zirconium chemicals.
