Reactive Chemicals - Crosslinking

MEL Chemicals supplies a range of zirconium based reactive chemicals, suitable for use in various applications including adhesives, antiperspirants, printing inks, oil production, paint, pigment coating and metal treatment.

Bacote® 20 & XL

Bacote® 20 & XL are modified zirconium solutions with improved stability in respect of elevated temperatures, pH, and of hydrolysis when diluted.

Zirconium Acetate Solution

An acidic solution believed to contain neutral species based on a hydroxy-bridged zirconium polymer. MEL Chemicals supply two concentrations of this material; 22 wt% ZrO2 and 30 wt% ZrO2.

Zirconium Basic Carbonate Paste

A moist cake containing approximately 42% ZrO2. It dissolves readily in both mineral and organic acids.

Zirconium Hydroxychloride Solution

A clear, acidic solution containing cationic hydroxylated polynuclear zirconium species. The solution contains approximately 20 wt% ZrO2.

Zirconium Nitrate Solution

A clear, acidic solution containing cationic hydroxylated polynuclear zirconium species. MEL Chemicals supply two concentrations of this material; 20 wt% ZrO2 and 30 wt% ZrO2.

Zirconium nitrate solutions can be used for various applications; including use as a raw material for zirconium compounds, a ceramic binder or in catalysis.

Please see the data sheet downloads for further information.

Zirconium Orthosulphate Solution

An acidic solution believed to contain anionic species based on a hydroxy-bridged polymer. MEL Chemicals supplies an 18 wt% solutions based on ZrO2.

Zirconium orthosulphate solution can be used for various applications; including use as a cross-linker, a raw material for zirconium compounds or in pigment coating.

Zirconium Oxychloride Solution

A clear, acidic solution containing the equivalent of approximately 20 wt% ZrO2. The solutions contains cationic hydroxylated polynuclear zirconium species.

Zirconium Propionate

A white free flowing powder that is insoluble in water but soluble in ethanol, ethyl acetate and isopropanol. Zirconium propionate is commonly used in the production of solvent based inks.

ZirmelTM

Zirmel is a clear, alkaline solutions of potassium zirconium carbonate. Zirmel is available at a range of ZrO2 concentrations.
