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 armour plating on military aircraft, heat shield in space shuttles and potentially as solid oxide fuel cells in hydrogen powered vehicles and in many industrial and chemical applications.More than 50% of all zircon is used in the ceramics industry due to zircon’s ability to impart opacity, (whiteness and brightness) and to create glazes on products such as tiles, sanitary-ware (baths, sinks and toilets) and crockery. Zircon is a hard and tough material as it maintains its physical and chemical composition when subjected to high temperatures and corrosive environments.
Zircon is used to block X-ray emissions in cathode ray tubes (CRT) found in computers and television monitors, to produce biomedical devices such as hip and knee replacements, rechargeable light weight batteries, television screens, fuses and toothpaste and also as a foundry sand for specialist investment casting or high-precision casting.
