Zirconium nitride (ZrN) is an inorganic compound. Golden crystal powder. The density is 7.09. Insoluble in water, slightly soluble in inorganic acids, soluble in concentrated sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and aqua regia. High decomposition temperature, good chemical stability, good high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and wear resistance.

ZrN grown by physical vapor deposition (PVD) is a kind of light gold similar to elemental gold. The room temperature resistivity of ZrN is 12.0μΩcm, the temperature coefficient of resistivity is 5.610^-8Ωcm/K, the superconducting transition temperature is 10.4K, and the relaxation lattice parameter is 0.4575nm. The hardness and elastic modulus of single crystal ZrN are 22.7 ±1.7GPa and 450GPa respectively.


Zirconium nitride has excellent corrosion resistance, high hardness, good lubricity and ductility. These properties also make it an attractive coating material.


What is Zirconium Nitride ZrN Used For?

Zirconium nitride is a kind of hard ceramic material similar to titanium nitride and a kind of cement refractory. Therefore, it is used in refractories, cermets and laboratory crucibles. When using the physical vapor deposition coating process, it is commonly used to coat medical equipment, industrial components (especially drills), automotive and aerospace components, and other components that are vulnerable to high wear and corrosion environments. When alloyed with Al, the electronic structure changes from local octahedral bond symmetry of cubic ZrN to distortion to increase Al content, resulting in more complex bonding and higher hardness.

Zirconium nitride is proposed to be used as hydrogen peroxide fuel tank lining for rockets and aircraft.


What is ZrN Coating?

Zirconium nitride is the most biocompatible ceramic hard nitride. Zirconium nitride is tougher, harder and provides more lubricity than titanium nitride. It is widely used in cutting applications where other coatings fail.

ZrN coating is mainly used for cutting tools, such as various cutting tools, saws, drills, etc. The coating forms a thin and very hard layer of ceramic material on the surface. In fact, the coating is only about 5 microns thick. However, such a thin layer is enough to increase the life of the tool by three to five times.

ZrN coating makes tool cleaning easier. In addition to improving the durability of the tool, this coating also makes the tool easier to clean. The surface becomes smoother and the material does not stick to the tool like an uncoated tool.

This coating makes the surface smoother, harder, and increases lubricity, thereby improving the performance of the tool and reducing friction. As a result, people can spend less effort to get higher performance from cutting tools.
