We are the exclusive distributor in the UK for CMMP zircon sand and flours. CMMP was founded in 1932 in Paris, and has been supplying zircon (zirconium silicate) for the investment castings industry since 1950. Zircon is a refractory mineral used in foundries, refractories, ceramics, abrasives, and glass manufacturing applications.
Key properties include a high melting point, low thermal expansion co-efficiency, chemical stability at high temperatures, low wettability by molten metals, and resistance upon abrasion and impact.
Zircon is an excellent addition to the mould material used in investment and sand castings. It is also used in mould coatings.
Heat resistant properties allows use as an effective filler within an array of refractory materials, including furnace linings and zircon bricks, in addition to mortars and cements. Our zircon grades can be applied to ceramic bodies, glazes, frits and engobe formulations; commonly functioning as an opacifier.
Other zircon applications include for use in the manufacture of faceplate glass in LCD and plasma screens, and in the production of zirconium oxides.
We have extensive experience in the precision foundry, refractory and ceramics markets and can provide a high level of technical knowledge. Our product range includes calcined and un-calcined grades in sand and flour forms. Please find our specifications attached, or get in touch for further information and samples.
