Zirconium Nitride, ZrN
Zirconium nitride USES:
Zirconium nitride has good neutron properties, thermal physical properties and chemical
stability under high temperature environment, and its own high melting point. It is one of
the systems required by IMF material selection for the fourth-generation nuclear fission
system. (Zr - N) compounds as the change of composition and a variety of crystal structure,
such as: in Zr - N alloy system, has found a ZrN, o - Zr alloy compounds ? N ?, c - Zr ? N ?.
They not only have excellent chemical properties, not only can be used in Josephson
junction, diffuse layer, low thermometer, etc., but also can be used in 3D integrated electric
coil, metal based transistor. At the same time, these ZR-N compounds are superior to
pure zirconium in wear resistance, oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance, etc.,
and have a high superconducting critical temperature, so they may become a very good
superconductor, with high use value.
Zirconium nitride is mainly used in nuclear reactor protective layer of alloy materials,
aerospace rocket engine jet of high temperature alloy material, artillery missile alloy
material, and production of petroleum and chemical reducing chloride reactor or container
of corrosion resistant material, but also widely used in industrial applications, such as car
accessories, mobile communications equipment and cameras and other digital products
such as anti-corrosion corrosion resistant layer diffusion barrier layer and decorative layer
and circuit devices, etc. The applications of zirconium nitride in other fields are mainly as
follows: based on its excellent electrical conductivity, it can be used as an electrical contact
layer in the electronic industry; based on its low friction coefficient and good sliding performance,
it can be used as a composite layer in tribology.
