Saint-Gobain ZirPro is a world leader in the manufacturing Zirconium Chemical Derivatives, and has more than 20 years of experience in the Zirconium chemistry and related processes and technologies.
Zirconium Chemicals are used either as manufacturing intermediates for other Zirconium compounds, or for their intrinsic properties in given applications:
- Zirconium Oxychloride (ZOC): main zirconium based intermediate, used also for the manufacturing of the other zirconium chemicals
- Zirconium Sulphates: Zirconium Basic Sulphate (ZBS) and Acid Zirconium Sulphate Tetrahydrate (AZST)
- Zirconium Basic Carbonate (ZBC): its strong knowledge of the Zirconium chemistry enabled ZirPro to develop a range of Zirconium Basic Carbonates, “S-ZBC”, showing improved chemical purity and reactivity. The S-ZBC can easily be dissolved in a large number of acid solutions (mineral and organic) in a large domain of concentration, to obtain clear zirconium salt solutions, with high Zirconium recovery yields. S-ZBC is also perfectly adapted for the production of double carbonate solutions (Ammonium Zirconium Carbonate AZC, and Potassium Zirconium Carbonate KZC).
Main applications that can use ZirPro’s Zirconium chemicals are:
- Antiperspirant actives
- TiO2 pigment coating
- Leather tanning
- Automotive catalysis
- Paper Coatings
- Intermediates for Zr compounds manufacturing (zirconium acetates, fluorides, phosphates,…)
