Zirconium Sputtering Target Safety Data Sheet



Zirconium Sputtering Target Description

ZirconiumZirconium sputtering target shares properties with its source material. Zirconium is a chemical element with the symbol Zr and atomic number 40. It is a lustrous, grey-white, strong transition metal that closely resembles hafnium and, to a lesser extent, titanium. Zirconium is mainly used as a refractory and opacifier, although small amounts are used as an alloying agent for its strong resistance to corrosion. Zirconium forms a variety of inorganic and organometallic compounds such as zirconium dioxide and zirconocene dichloride, respectively. Five isotopes occur naturally, three of which are stable. Zirconium compounds have no known biological role.

Zirconium Sputtering Target Application

Zirconium sputtering target is used for thin film deposition, fuel cell, decoration, semiconductor, display, LED and photovoltaic devices, functional coating as nicely as other optical information storage space industry, glass coating industry like car glass and architectural glass, optical communication, etc.

The Zirconium metal is used also in the nuclear industry as nuclear reactors for cladding fuel elements since it has a low absorption cross-section for neutrons. Zirconium is very resistant to corrosion by many common acids and alkalis and by seawater. It is therefore used extensively by the chemical industry where corrosive agents are employed. The metal is used as an alloying agent in steel and for making surgical appliances. The metal super conducts at low temperatures and zirconium/niobium alloys are used to make superconductor magnets. Alloys with zinc become magnetic at temperatures below 35 K. Zirconium is used as a “getter” in vacuum tubes, in flashbulbs for photography, in explosive primers, and in lamp filaments.
