Zircon (ZrSiO4) is a common accessory mineral found in the Earth’s crust which has a close semblance to diamond.

At IMC, Zircon grains are carefully separated to cater to a variety of industrial requirements. IMC Zircon is of superior quality and is highly resistant to heat. The IMC Zircon sand has higher whiteness and durability.

Advantages

Zircon compounds are not perceived as environmentally hazardous owing to their low toxicity. It plays a pivotal role in the production of ceramics as it renders rigidity, superior whiteness and desired shape to the product. The quantity and quality of Zircon is the determining factor in a ceramic product's ability to withstand high temperatures.

Applications

Used in ceramics - as it gives rigidity, whiteness and shape to several ceramic products.

Manufacture of a range of high-tech applications, such as armour-plating on military aircraft and heat-shield in space shuttles.

Works as solid oxide fuel cells in Hydrogen-powered vehicles in many industrial and chemical applications.

Used in minor dental applications.

Used as an important gemstone, with several color forms used in various types of jewellery.

Played an important role during the evolution of radiometric dating.
