Int. NormenAlloy Zr 700
Zirconium Zr 700 is unalloyed zirconium with low oxygen content.
Zirconium offers very good resistance in highly corrosive environments such as acids and alkaline solutions, as well as high toughness. Zirconium is easy to machine, weld and fully recyclable. It can be easily processed by rolling, forging and hammering.
Zirconium is passivated in air by a thin, very dense zirconium oxide layer and is therefore inert. It is therefore insoluble in almost all acids, only aqua regia and hydrofluoric acid attack zirconium at room temperature.
