Zirconium (Zr) is a grayish-white chemical element sourced from mineral zircon (ZrSiO4) sand. It is strong, ductile, malleable, and extremely resistant to heat and corrosion by other agents in nature. It is very weak in absorbing thermal neutrons. Therefore, zirconium alloys are used in fuel cladding. Zirconium is widely used in various applications such as ceramics, chemicals, refractory, foundry, and television glass.
