Zirconium Silicate Beads

Zirconium Silicate Beads

Zirconium silicate beads are made of pure zircon (ZrSiO4). Zircon particles combine in a controlled reaction followed by vacuum de-gassing with a controlled sintered process resulting in tighter molecular bond which increases density and wear resistance. 

0.6 – 0.8 mm

Washing & Sterilization
Zirconium beads are washed twice in sterile water and dried at 350˚F for three hours. Dried beads are packed in 50 gm and 100 gm quantities and are sterilized at 120˚C for 15 minutes
