Zirconium Wire Mesh
Zirconium wire mesh takes on the look of a silvery metal mesh, as
do most zirconium products. With a high melting point of 1855°C
(3371°F) and a small neutron adsorption cross-section, zirconium is
excellent for the nuclear power industry.

Characteristics of Ziconium wire mesh
Zirconium is a strong, malleable, ductile, lustrous, grayish-white
metal. Its chemical and physical properties are similar to those of
titanium. Zirconium is lighter than steel and its hardness is
similar to copper.
Zirconium is extremely resistant to heat and corrosion.It is
however rapidly attacked by hydrofluoric acid, even at low
In an oxygen atmosphere, finely divided Zirconium burns with the
highest known temperature for a metal flame: 4460°C.Powdered
zirconium can spontaneously ignite in air.
Application of Ziconium wire mesh
Nuclear applications, Catalytic converters, percussion caps and
furnace bricks, Lab crucibles.
