Welcome to the
The Zircon Industry Association is a non-profit trade association, that works on behalf of our membership to develop and promote zircon, zirconia and derivative substances by advocating the benefits of their extensive application in today’s world.
Our members commit to ZIA values which serve to encourage the industry to operate sustainably and with integrity.
Zircon is a versatile material and has various derivative forms.
ZIA completed the first ever global LCA for the use of zircon in the manufacture of ceramic tiles.
Zircon has unique properties, making it essential for a wide range of industrial and scientific applications.
Best practice guides for transporting zircon as a NORM.
ZIA aims to support members by providing guidance on best practice in the industry.
The handbook provides information on market statistics, uses and applications of zircon and emerging research and development.
ZIA elected a new Chair, Angelika Priese from Imerys Fused Minerals, at their recent AGM as the Association reported another year of progress.
Comprehensive guide to the procedures and regulations involved in transporting zircon.
Zircon and its derivatives are used in countless every day products, most notably in the manufacture of ceramic tiles. They also have many other critical and unique uses across the global industrial sector. The role that zircon and its derivatives play in today’s world is far-reaching and because of its unique qualities and environmental credentials, its importance is still growing.
From bathrooms to life enhancing medical implants, learn more about the extraordinary uses of zircon in our modern world.
Zircon sand is not corrosive to metal and, therefore, is not a candidate for classification as a corrosive in bulk.
Zirconium dioxide (or zirconia) provides a high strength, wear resistant, chemically inert and non-toxic surface ideal for medical implants.
Zircon is playing a role in minimising the environmental impact of how we live.
